As more people choose to live with each other over marriage, or before they decide to get married, a legal framework under the Family Law Scotland Act 2006 was developed which outlines the rights of cohabitees in a relationship in Scotland.
The Act lays out a person’s rights in respect of financial provision on separation, or where a partner has died. The laws surrounding cohabitees are widely unknown, and can often come as a surprise to couples in a cohabiting relationship, sometimes too late. To find out more about your rights as a cohabitee, or if you would like to create a cohabitation agreement for you and your partner, get in touch with one of our team today. We receive countless referrals from people who have recognised the quality of our service and our down to earth, human approach to legal services.
