Cohabitation

Click here to arrange a free initial meeting regarding Cohabitation advice.

Many people are choosing to live together rather than marrying. While you will not have the same right as married couples or civil partners, it is important to consider a cohabitation contract to set out your financial arrangements, to avoid any disputes later.

We can also help surviving cohabitants make a claim on a deceased partner’s estate when there is no Will, and apply to the courts for financial assistance when a relationship has broken down.

To speak to a member of our family law team, please call us on 01896 752 231 or complete our enquiry form and we will contact you.

We have offices in Galashiels, Hawick, Jedburgh, Kelso, Melrose, Peebles and Selkirk and will be happy to arrange a meeting at any of these locations or we can schedule a video call or telephone appointment.
