SEMINAR: Increase in Cohabitation and the difficulties arising in these specialist cases

Cohabitation Seminar: Thursday 23rd May, Glasgow

For many people, marriage is seen as old-fashioned and doesn’t work within today’s society. More and more couples are reluctant to get married in order to keep their finances separate, and therefore we are seeing a huge increase in cohabitation. However many of these couples are unaware that cohabiting could have major consequences if the relationship ends, with the possibility of a financial claim if they split.

At this seminar, aimed at legal professionals, Jones Whyte family law experts, along with renowned family law Advocate Kirsty Malcolm, will discuss the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006 and examine some of the difficulties arising in cohabitation cases and the consequences of not understanding this complex legal situation.
