About LivingTogether

Click here to go to our LivingTogether pages .

Our LivingTogether campaign counters the popular myth that people gain legal rights simply by living with their partner for a certain period of time.

On the LivingTogether pages we explain exactly what rights you really have if you live with your partner and make clear what you need to do to protect both you and your partner from whatever the future may hold.

LivingTogether information applies to England and Wales only.
The law in Scotland and Northern Ireland is significantly different.
