Couples in Scotland who live together but don’t marry or enter into civil partnership have rights that offer protection in the event of the breakdown of a relationship.
While those rights are not as extensive as the rights granted to married couples or civil partners, they still impact upon the treatment of property, finances or arrangements for children upon separation.
Many couples choose to enter into Cohabitation Agreements to agree what should happen in the event of separation. Each Cohabitation Agreement is different and the content will depend upon the couple’s particular circumstances.
