Family – Cohabitation Disputes

Property 1Relationship breakdown is an incredibly traumatic experience and you are likely to feel extremes of anger, guilt or despair, but right at this low point in your life, you will need to make a number of tough, complex and far-reaching decisions. You therefore need a calm, experienced and professional hand to guide you through it, and that is what you will get with the George Davies Family team.

The law regarding cohabiting couples is completely different to the law regarding married couples. It is therefore vital to get proper advice at an early stage because your rights and obligations will probably be very different to what you think they are.

The George Davies family team has a wealth of experience in helping cohabitees in dispute, and going to court to claim what is rightfully theirs. However, in most situations we can achieve a quicker and cheaper solution by using alternatives to court. We will explain what the other routes are and we will help you make the right choice.

We are used to negotiating constructively with your former partner or their lawyers, we can offer Collaborative Law, we are experienced in offering guidance and advice alongside mediation, and we have very strong links with mediators and arbitrators in Manchester and the Northwest.

We have developed some guides, available to download, which answer the most frequently asked questions on cohabitation disputes. Please click on any of the links below to download.
