Often, some couples who separate do not wish to obtain a divorce. However, even in such circumstances it may still be necessary for financial matters to be resolved. At Luton Family Law we can assist you to negotiate a settlement which can subsequently be incorporated into a separation agreement which will be a legal record of the intentions of both parties at the time of separation.

When couples who are not married separate, they face the same painful experiences that a married couple face and similar broad issues such as how they should resolve difficulties concerning the children, financial provisions for the children and any house they reside in. However, unlike married couples for whom there are detailed rules relating to in particular to the financial aspect of separation, the rules relating to cohabitees when they separate are still far from clear. As family law experts we can assist you in clarifying your legal rights and, if necessary, take steps to safeguard your interests and those of any children of the relationship.
