Cohabiting couples are the UK’s fastest and most significantly increasing family type. There are more than 3.6 million cohabiting couples in the UK.

A financial settlement in divorce is an agreement between both parties on how to split all relevant assets, including things like property, savings, investments and pensions. If there are children involved, it could also set out the details of child maintenance payments going forward.
