Financial Matters Following Separation after Cohabitation

At Fieldings Porter we understand that the breakdown of a relationship can be an emotional and stressful experience, not least when there are financial matters to be resolved. Our experienced team includes members of the Law Society Family Law Accreditation Scheme, the Law Society Family Law Advanced Accreditation Scheme, the Law Society Children Law Accreditation Scheme and Resolution.

Cohabiting couples are partners who live together but who are not married or part of a civil partnership and this area of law is very different and most certainly less generous than that which applies to married couples or those who are civil partnered. Cohabitation disputes may also arise between friends or wider family members who live together. We can offer specialist advice in relation to this complex area of law.

What are our fees?

We appreciate that every case is different and we therefore offer a bespoke level of service in relation to all matters. Under this scheme we charge clients at an hourly rate for the work that we do for them.

We can assess your eligibility for legal aid. For more information on our fees, please click here. If you think you might be eligible for legal aid, please click here for a link to the legal aid eligibility calculator, or alternatively, contact us for an assessment.

We also appreciate that thinking about what steps you should be taking is a daunting prospect with many people, understandably, not knowing where to start. With this in mind we offer a consultation of up to an hour with one of our solicitors which, is followed up by a written letter of advice for £200 plus VAT.
