Taylor&Emmet lobbies MP for cohabiting couples

A family law expert from the Dronfield office of Taylor&Emmet LLP has met the area’s member of parliament to campaign for better rights for unmarried couples.

Rachel Barlow and North East Derbyshire MP, Lee Rowley, sat down at Taylor&Emmet’s new premises in the town to discuss the lack of legal protection for cohabitees.

As members of Resolution, the organisers of Cohabitation Awareness Week, Taylor&Emmet is lobbying for statutory changes to give unmarried couples the same legal protection, if the relationship breaks down, as those in marriages or civil partnerships. Currently, cohabitation is not recognised in law, regardless of how long the parties have lived together.

Taylor&Emmet’s probate team took part in St Luke’s Wills Month, creating more than 30 new and updated wills for clients, in return for a donation. The initiative kicked off the firm’s fundraising, banking £3,145.
