Unmarried cohabiting families are the fastest growing type of family in the UK. Because unmarried couples have fewer legal rights than married couples, many now seek a cohabitation agreement.
Some clients may want such an agreement before they move in together or if their circumstances are changing, for example if they’re having children or getting a mortgage.
An agreement can set out how you share finances or what happens if one of you becomes ill, dies or split up.
