Finances on Separation when parties are living together but not married i.e. cohabitees.
There is no legal definition of living together. There is a common misconception that if you have lived with your partner for a certain number of years you are a “common law spouse” and have certain rights against your partner. In law, there is no such things as “common law spouse” and you cannot rely on matrimonial legislation as married couples can. On separation the ownership of possessions can be quite complicated. It is important to take legal advice on your situation.
