Unmarried Couples

A big thanks to you all for your hard work in bringing my case to a successful conclusion. I'm so grateful to all of you for coping with me in this difficult situation and for everything you did for us as a family. I wish you every good success in the work that you do in this difficult area in keeping our families and children safe from harm in the world we live in. Once again thank you so much for all that you have done for us as a family.

The breakdown of a relationship where the couple has not married has some different considerations to those in a divorce or dissolution situation. Couples who live together but are not married do not have the same legal rights as married couples.

However financial matters can often be dealt with using property legislation such as the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act or alternatively by making claims for children under the Children Act.

We will still try to deal with matters by negotiation where possible and by using non Court based specialist solutions such as collaborative law and mediation. It is essential that you have a proper understanding of the legal background in order to help you reach the best possible outcome.

Sharon Montgomery and Danielle Peters can assist you with expert advice in relation to the breakdown of your relationship.

If your relationship has broken down, and you need assistance, please contact us for an appointment.
