Finances on other relationship breakdown

Generally

This is a common area of dispute, as more people live together without getting married or entering into a Civil Partnership Agreement.

Outside of such formal relationships, there is a lack of protection provided to parties . Further, parties often misunderstand their rights. For instance, many cohabiting couples are unaware they have little legal status and that common law husband and wife is a myth.

Rights are normally about strict legal positions rather than considering fairness on any relationship breakdown. It can be a complicated area of law. The Government has considered providing greater rights, particularly to those with children, but no change has occurred yet.
