People Living Together

If you live together as a couple or as friends or relatives sharing a home, then there are still legal implications arising from your relationship.

Sadly, as we know, some relationships will fail or disputes will arise for a variety of reasons. At such a difficult time it is important to have an early assessment of your legal and financial position from a professional with both experience and understanding and who is fully conversant with this complex area of law.

When a relationship breaks down there are a number of issues that need to be dealt with. It is extremely important that couples are assisted in reaching agreement over any dispute, either in relation to a home, its contents or other assets. In addition, if children are involved, arrangements will have to be agreed for their future care and support.

When you are living together it is also important to consider how you want your assets to be distributed in the event of your untimely death. Whilst it is not something most of us want to think about, it is advisable to consider making a Will, as claims can arise, leaving you, your remaining family or children in a vulnerable position.

Our specialists at Shacklocks deal specifically with this area of law. They are not general practitioners and they therefore devote all of their energies to helping people in relationships. They know the answers to the difficult questions and they are able to provide prompt and strong advice at a time when this is most needed.

If you are planning to live together, or if your relationship has broken down, or you believe that it is in danger of doing so, please contact us at an early stage for advice.
