Advice on ending a range of relationships
Separation for unmarried couples is just as painful, stressful and emotional as the divorce of married couples, especially if you are unaware of your legal rights. Giles Wilson can offer timely and sensitive advice to make sure your interests are met if your relationship ends.
When unmarried couples decide to separate, it's important that both individuals are aware of their legal rights. Unlike marriage, English law does not recognise cohabitation as a legal relationship – often treating the couple as individuals. This can make separating a legal minefield, and it's important you get the necessary guidance.
Whatever stage of the separation you are in, Giles Wilson can lend practical advice and support, helping you to draw up a separation agreement that protects your interests. Making a separation agreement is a sensible first step for couples who intend to stop living together. This written agreement helps to sort out issues, including money, property and child arrangements and can be used to establish future commitments, financial or otherwise.
With experienced solicitors offering advice and guidance at every turn, we can help make separating as painless an experience as possible.
