Does Common Law Marriage Exist?

Many people are under the impression that couples that are not married but that live together, also known as cohabiting couples, form a common law marriage.

The importance of making a Will for unmarried couples

The number of cohabiting family households have doubled since 1997 yet there is no legislation in England and Wales that adequately protects such couples on death. Unmarried couples do not have the same rights as married couples especially when it comes to death and inheritance no matter how long you have been together.

Alcohol testing within family law proceedings

In some situations, allegations are made between parents as to the consumption of alcohol. Where there are concerns of this nature, often contact between children and the accused parent is limited until clear evidence as to the sobriety of the parent is established.

Can I take my child abroad without the other parent’s consent?

We are often asked who can take a child out of the UK on holiday and whether the consent of both parents is required.
