How Do You Protect Yourself when It comes to Breaking up?
Tracey Moloney, head of family law at the Co-op tells all:
Unmarried couples that live together have no legal rights if they separate, so should consider a cohabitation agreement. it sets out how any debt will be managed plus how joint assets, including pets, will be distributed should they separate.
Couples intending to marry should consider a pre-nup – this allows couples to set out what would happen if they separate in the future.
married couples who later decide they should put an agreement in place, can opt for a post-nup.
