Many couples live together as cohabitees without formalising their relationship by getting married or entering into a civil partnership. If you and your partner are living together, we recommend you get advice about your situation.

Cohabitants since the implementation of The Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006 now have a limited financial claim between each other when they separate.

If you are planning to marry or enter into a civil partnership or have already done so, you may want to consider a prenuptial agreement. More couples are now doing this. We can give you advice about if you need such an agreement and the enforceability of the agreement.

A prenuptial agreement sets out what you and your future spouse or civil partner agree should happen in relation to your finances if your relationship breaks down and you separate.
