When a couple separates, it does not necessarily mean Court proceedings will need to be issued. The way in which the finances are dealt with in this situation are dependent on whether the couple were married or unmarried. It is imperative that you are aware of your rights as a spouse or civil partner as all financial and property issues will be dealt with differently in both situations and also where any children are concerned.
At Whitestone Solicitors we have a wealth of experience in all matters relating to married and unmarried couples and can provide you with thorough and clear guidance on how best to deal with your particular situation. We understand that no two situations will be the same and our advice is always tailored to your circumstances.
