Cohabitation

Many people now choose to cohabit rather than enter into marriage or a civil partnership. The Family Law (Scotland ) Act 2006 confers a range of rights and obligations on unmarried couples residing together, including those of the same sex who have not entered into a civil partnership. 

Our family law team work with you with discretion and care. We can provide legal advice on any aspect of your cohabitation. This may include financial claims in the event of the breakdown of your relationship, or making a claim in respect of the death of a partner. This particular area of law is still evolving and is complex. We are in a position to provide the highest quality advice to our clients. 



Our family law team is headed up by Judith Meil who is an accredited specialist in family law.
