How Do You Pro­tect Your­self when It comes to Break­ing up?

Look (UK) - - LIFE -

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.
