Financial claims for unmarried couples

The law relating to unmarried couples is vastly different to the law for those who are married. Regardless of the length of your relationship, on a breakdown your rights and obligations to each other are limited. Where there are children involved, there may be additional financial claims that can be made on their behalf as well as special rules that relate to the family home. 

We can advise you fully about the rights and obligations, whatever your family arrangement, and advise you how best to move your matters forward towards a resolution.

Financial claims for children

Making sure your children' futures are secured financially will be one of the most important aspects of your separation or divorce. Whether or not there are any other assets involved, the needs of any children are likely to be paramount.

There are a number of financial claims that could be made on behalf of children including property adjustment, maintenance and lump sums. Each matter will depend upon the individual facts but it would be important to obtain comprehensive legal advice early on so that you fully understand the landscape.
