Pinney Talfourd cohabitation solicitors have helped countless individuals with the untangling of their lives as part of an unmarried couple – addressing concerns with a comprehensive and considerate approach. We always take into account the varying personalities and appropriate legal rights of all parties involved – applying and outlining the best measures to ensure the most favourable outcome possible for you.
While the emotional and lifestyle challenges of unmarried couples mirror those faced by couples undergoing divorce, the legal landscape is notably different, often yielding unexpected and occasionally inequitable resolutions. You can trust a Pinney Talfourd cohabitation lawyer to achieve the best possible result for you.
In cases where an unmarried couple jointly owns a property, the existence of a Trust Deed or cohabitation agreement may delineate their respective shares. Yet frequently, such documentation is unfortunately – if understandably – absent. In the absence of such agreements, the thorough approach of a Pinney Talfourd cohabitation lawyer will assess and determine the legal and beneficial ownership of any property.
In situations where an amicable resolution eludes both parties, resorting to mediation or negotiations by cohabitation solicitors may well be fruitless. This may prompt an application to the Court under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996.
Many unmarried couples share the responsibility of raising children. Should they decide to part ways, an array of complex issues will undoubtedly and naturally emerge concerning the well-being of their offspring. The establishment of co-parenting arrangements becomes imperative – preferably through mutual accord or advice and guidance from cohabitation solicitors.
Determining the appropriate level of financial support for a couple’s children might necessitate an application by a cohabitation lawyer to the Child Maintenance Service, and, depending on the parties’ income, supplementary child maintenance applications may require adjudication in court. Moreover, one party or another may invoke Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989 to seek capital lump sums or property allocation during the child (or children’s) minority.
The cohabitation solicitors at Pinney Talfourd are steadfast in our commitment to avoiding court proceedings whenever and wherever possible.
