Unmarried couples should get a fair share on relationship breakdown - what is your view?

04/02/2011   By: Nigel Shepherd

Nigel Shepherd of Mills & Reeve LLP appears on Channel 4 representing Resolution on the proposed reforms for cohabiting couples.

Resolution, an organisation of family lawyers has been campaigning for the introduction of new laws which would apply to couples who have been living together. Unmarried couples currently have very few legal rights on relationship breakdown. The new law would act as a safety net and prevent injustice by allowing the courts to recognise a cohabiting relationship and decide on an outcome which is fair and reasonable, taking into account individual contributions to the relationship.
