Living together FAQs


If we were being really broad this could be an enormous category. Buying property, preparing wills, and tax law could all be included. We are just going to concentrate on family law aspects in this category, however.

On the face of it this should be a fairly simple category but actually there are lots of different situations in which two people end up living together. We have articles on:

  • Civil partnerships
  • Marriage
  • Arranged marriage
  • Cohabitation
  • Same-sex marriage

These different situations can result in many different scenarios in terms of asset-sharing and division. If you're concerned about a situation, or just want some clarity, give us a call and we'll be able to give you some advice and match you to a family solicitor who can help.
