Property Division
• Property division is an important aspect of family law, and yet it is often overlooked when signing agreements that affect it. In relation to family law, property law is more than an area in itself - it is closely tied to divorce law, civil partnerships, and pre and post nuptial agreements. Many questions of property family law fall under this area, and Sterling Law’s expertise covers all of them.

Cohabitation Matters
It has become more and more common in recent years for cohabitation to happen before, and outside of, civil partnerships and marriage. It is extremely important, however, that you consider the legal aspects of this arrangement, as you are not protected by marriage or civil partnership laws, no matter how long you have been cohabiting.
Cohabitation Matters
Pre-nuptial agreements
• Sterling Law will help you at every step of the process – including in writing and enforcing the agreement. Courts will often give more weight to pre-nuptial agreements if it is clear that the agreement was written with the help of legal professionals and the correct procedures were followed.
