Couples who are not married, even if they live together, are guided by separate laws, specifically related to home ownership. There is much pressure on the government to adjust this policy but at the present time, there is very little room for manoeuvre when dealing with the separation of cohabitees in terms of property and division of assets.

The CMEC are, however, involved in child maintenance payments for children, irrespective of whether their parents are married or not.
