: The numbers of unmarried cohabiting couples continue to increase. As a result for family lawyers and private client lawyers, law and practice relating to this area continues to grow in significance. This fifth edition of Cohabitation: Law, Practice and Precedents has been extensively revised to take account of the UK's Family Procedure Rules 2010 and includes a new section on welfare benefits, as well as analysis of significant UK case law, such as the Supreme Court's ruling in Kernott v Jones. In this book, practitioners will find authoritative analysis of the applicable UK law and expert guidance on procedural issues, whether preparing a cohabitation contract or ante-nuptial agreement, drafting wills for cohabiting couples, advising on rights on the breakdown of a relationship or the death of a partner, or applying for a personal protection order or a parental responsibility agreement. Cohabitation: Law, Practice and Precedents is the only work on the subject to provide commentary, checklists, procedural guides, and precedents in a single volume, making it an invaluable aid to all practitioners advising unmarried couples. This fifth edition comes with a CD-ROM containing all the precedents covered in the volume.
