Legal issues involving your children are often emotionally sensitive, which means that it is critical to get the right help. Our expert team of child law solicitors in Reigate can offer friendly, practical support to find the right solution for you and your children.

It is increasingly common for couples to live together without being married. However, many people fail to realise that there are limited legal protections for this arrangement if the relationship ends.
This could mean that you have no right to stay in your shared home following a separation if it belongs to your partner. It could also mean that any property you own together will be evenly divided, no matter how much each of you contributed towards it.
If you need help crafting an agreement, our cohabitation solicitors in Reigate can provide the clear, practical legal advice required to ensure every detail is taken care of. With our support, you can be sure that an agreement will be in place that is tailored to your needs. We can also support with same-sex cohabitation agreements.
A cohabitation agreement can cover matters such as how the mortgage and bills will be split. It is also likely to include what share of the property each of you owns and what will happen if you separate. By having a clear cohabitation agreement in place, you can protect your interests and avoid any costly legal expenses should the relationship unfortunately break down.
It is common for couples to enter into a marriage with pre-existing assets, including property. This can present a number of complications if the relationship doesn’t work out.
Pre-nuptial agreements, or pre-nups, will set out the financial position of both parties with regard to how the matrimonial pot would be split in the event of separation further down the line.

We understand how sensitive these matters can be, and so we always take a friendly, practical approach. Our solicitors will ensure that the right protections are put in place while avoiding any potential for a negative impact on your relationship.
A pre-nuptial agreement can be especially useful for high net worth individuals, providing improved security and helping them to protect their finances in the event of a divorce. Equally, business owners and others with additional assets they’d like to protect are advised to seek financial protection using a pre-nup.
In Reigate, we also specialise in similar provisions, including post-nuptial agreements and pre-registration agreements for civil partnerships.
