What happens in Unmarried Mediation Bournemouth?

When ending a long-term, or even a short-term, relationship with children or other shared responsibilities, unmarried couples might use mediation to create plans for the future relating to matters like finances, property, and children.

How family mediation works

Some legal protections are available only through marriage or a civil union.

Even if you’ve been married for a long time and have shared a home for a lengthy amount of time, just being in a long-term relationship does not grant you the same rights.

Some people still believe that in England, if they live with someone for long enough, they can claim the benefits of a “common law marriage” and become legally married, but this is not the case.

When a cohabitant couple separates, unmarried mediation Bournemouth  can help them work out future arrangements that are fair for everyone concerned, including any children and extended family members.

Avoiding legal conflicts and the complications that can result from having fewer legal protections in place when you’re not married is aided by this.

When a couple lives together but are unmarried, what protections do they have?

The terms “unmarried” and “cohabiting” used throughout this page refer to couples who are neither married nor in a civil partnership.

In most jurisdictions, a civil partnership provides the same legal protections to its members as marriage does.

If you have children together, you may also be considered a parent. 

However, it’s important to keep in mind that unwed fathers only get these rights if they are included on the birth certificate or if they have been granted parental responsibility by a court.

Many people who live together in a household assume that they will each have an equal stake in the house, however in most cases, only one person in the household will have any cohabiting property rights.

One party may have sole claim to the value and residency rights of a property if they have moved into a property previously owned by the other party, especially if the title documents and mortgage are held only in one name.

However, there are advantages to splitting up as a non-married couple, since there is no marriage or civil partnership to end.

As long as you can afford to take care of your dependents and each other, you are not required to go to court to settle your differences and can make your own arrangements for the future.

What makes Unmarried Mediation Bournemouth different?

There is a reasonably structured procedure to follow when a married couple divorces or when parties in a civil partnership seek to terminate it.

Unmarried Mediation Bournemouth is not required for cohabitants to resolve their differences. 

Unmarried Mediation Bournemouth can help you work out your differences and come to an agreement about things like shared living expenses, joint bank accounts, and even a long-term pet that you both adore.

Your settlement agreement from unmarried mediation Bournemouth will be less formal than a divorce or dissolution decree and can be as all-encompassing or as narrowly tailored as you and your spouse like.

However, unmarried mediation Bournemouth can still be very useful as a place to express any unresolved issues and move on in a constructive manner.

There are a few things to consider

Since there are less legal constraints when ending a cohabiting relationship, the mediator will be able to devote more time to discussing the problems that are most important to you rather than working on a settlement agreement that can be taken to court.

Consider your top priorities and the kind of arguments where you might both benefit from hearing an outside perspective.

There are the “usual suspects,” such as cash, homes, and kids.

If you want one party to continue to have access to children even if they do not legally have parental responsibility for them, for example, a mediator can assist you come to a solution that is mutually acceptable yet unusual.

Involving a trained, impartial mediator in your conversations can help you reach a solution that satisfies everyone.
