I have lived with my partner for over 10 years. Do I have any right to claim property division?
This is a very complex question. The law has developed in recent years to allow some claims related to property in some common law cases, especially under the concept of a “joint family venture”. However, this is one of the most unpredictable and underdeveloped areas of family law. There are a lot of factors that go into these claims and it is very important to speak to a lawyer if you have questions about a property claim when you were not married. The lawyers at Modern Family Law LLP have dealt with these claims and can provide you personalized advice based on your situation.
