FLiP’s Cohabitation Week – Video #5 – An Overview of the Systems for Unmarried Couples
Director James Pirrie concludes cohabitation week with an overview of the systems available to unmarried couples in the event of a separation. James breaks down the three financial systems as:
- Property claims which can be made, often called TOLATA.
- The administrative system being the CMS. James mentions our helpful calculator on our website which you can find here.
- The “safety net scheme” – Schedule 1 claims dealing with financial provision for children.
Get in touch with us to understand how these systems will be applied to you in the event of a separation.
James recognises that families are different and so there is no single right solution for everyone – you will need the right process at the right time to have your best chance of the optimal outcome. James conducts litigation, is an arbitrator, accredited mediator and collaborative lawyer. James can work within the one couple – one lawyer model and as a negotiator or advocate, engaging a wide range of allied professionals and resources to find the right resources for you to secure the right outcome in the best way possible.
