This whole situation came about because the girl/woman in question removed her protection whilst having sex in a devious way of creating a situation that the man was "forced" to divorce his wife to avoid a scandal. This young lady is very sly and scheming and there is no question in my mind that within a few years there will be a parting of ways either because of jealousy or some other cause for a break in relationships. It is then that she will employ every possibility to ensure she claims every possible financial benefit from him, including his assets. It is this situation which I want to protect him from in its entirity.
which means that he will not have to pay child maintenance
You mean surely to say that he WILL hev to pay?
So can you please clarify in law what is the difference if he remains with her as a support or if he marries her which he does not wish to do?
Is there a certain amount of time if they live together that the courts would classify them as a couple and if they later split up she would be entitled to part of his assets?
Thank you but I am still not fully clear on the matter.
Currently they are in rented accomodation and the tenancy agreement (AST) is in her name only. If he would decide to buy a house in his name and allow her to live there with the child, do I understand it correctly that she would then be entitled to live there permanently?
And if and when it came to sell it, would she be entitled to any profits if she claims that they were living together as husband and wife albeit not officially married? Could he create a contract before entering in to such a situation to protect him from such eventualities which was my initial question
