Cohabitation

The rights and privileges under law of cohabiting couples differ dramatically from those of married couples in several key areas.

  • Property
  • Finance
  • Child Support
  • Inheritance

Generally speaking you will have fewer rights cohabiting than you would as a married couple as there is no legal definition of cohabitation or living together. This obviously makes things more complicated in the event of separation and can increase the stress during an already stressful time.
