Cohabitation Agreements

Highly experienced team who are here to help you

A Cohabitation Agreement is a document that sets out what will happen to assets, finances and family if you and your unmarried partner should separate.

It can cover everything from property rights and shared assets to care of children. It is designed to limit unnecessary cost and legal issues following a potential breakup.

People often think that couples who have been living together for a long period of time are ‘common law’ husbands and wives, but there is no such legal status in the Isle of Man. What this means is that in case of separation, cohabiting couples don’t have the same rights and protections as people who are legally married.

If this is something you wish to consider further our family team would be happy to help.

If you need to talk to someone around a cohabitation agreement then take the first step and email familyteam@mannbenham.com or call us on 01624 639350 to arrange your free initial half hour consultation with us today over the telephone or video.
