Now Sarah has moved in with Ben, they have decided not to get married again. Her mother warns her that if anything were to happen in the future, she should think about making a cohabitation agreement.
The number of people living together has more than doubled from 10 years ago. Many people still think that cohabiting couples have the same legal rights, when dividing up finances, as couples who are married, but this is a myth, there is no such thing as common-law marriage.
With the help of our professional, qualified legal advisors here at Wilkin Chapman solicitors, we will be able to advise you on cohabitation agreements, as well as helping you draw up your Will properly to ensure your future is secure.
