The Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act 2010 introduced new rights and responsibilities for cohabitants, opposite and same sex, who are living together for 5 years and for 2 years where they have a child.
The Family Support Agency has funded Treoir to run an information campaign around the cohabitants part of the Act. The radio campaign commenced on Tuesday 19th of April and ran for a number of weeks.
The new campaign leaflet ‘Cohabitants – new legal rights and obligations for opposite and same sex couples’ can be downloaded from our website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to order copies or call 1890 252 084.
Pictured at the launch were Margaret Dromey (CEO, Treoir), Leonie Lunny (Chair, Treoir) and Pat Bennett (CEO, Family Support Agency).
Please Note: if your relationship ended either through break-up or death prior to the enactment of this Act, January 2011, these rights and obligations do not apply.
