A review of cohabitation law in Scotland

26 Feb 2020

The first publication in our Aspects of Family Law project, a Discussion Paper on Cohabitation, is published today. The Discussion Paper focuses on sections 25 to 28 of the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006 and considers, in particular, the definition of “cohabitant” and the law relating to claims for financial provision on the breakdown of a cohabiting relationship.  The consultation is open for comment until 31 May 2020.  For more information see our news release and the Discussion Paper, along with a summary, available on our current consultations page.
