The number of unmarried couples cohabiting has continued to rise in recent years – and an increase in disputes between such couples, whether of the same or of different sexes, has been an inevitable consequence. All family lawyers advising clients on relationship breakdown need to be expert in this challenging area of practice.

In this substantially expanded edition of the definitive work on cohabitation law and practice, John Wilson has analysed and explained the many important developments in the last half dozen years.

Unrivalled in the breadth and depth of its coverage, Cohabitation Claims will equip the practitioner with all the resources needed to pursue or defend not only straightforward claims but also those involving complex trust structures, illegality or insolvency issues.

At the end of the book John Wilson expresses the hope that ‘the contents of this book will assist the practitioner in advising the client in a way that is sensible and cost-effective’. That hope has undoubtedly been fulfilled through the perspicuity and clearness of his analysis of the legal principles, cases and procedure.

From the foreword by the Honourable Mrs Justice Theis.
