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.
