Why You Should Have a Cohabitation Agreement in Place

What is cohabitation?

Cohabitation is when a couple live together as if husband and wife or as civil partners. In determining whether or not a couple are or have been cohabiting, the court will always consider the length of time in which a couple lived together andthe nature of the relationship that was shared during that period of time, in addition to all financial arrangements that existed during the course of the relationship. Although the Family Law (Scotland)_2006 Act introduced a set of basic rights for cohabitants, they are still less protected than married or civilly registered couples.

Last Christmas I Gave You My Heart


The festive period is arguably the most joyful and happiest time of the year.  However, not to sound like Scrooge, unfortunately statistics don’t lie which show that January is a time when people are more likely to reflect on their personal situations and circumstances. In doing so, individuals will inevitably look at formalising a separation with their loved one and indeed embarking on a legal process towards separation and divorce.
