A cohabitation agreement defines the financial and other property contributions that will impact the relationship
If you have decided to move in with a partner, but not to marry, often a cohabitation agreement is drafted to define the financial and other property contributions that will impact their relationship.
Without an agreement, in the event your relationship ends, the court will divide property acquired during the time you lived together based on what the court deems to be fair and equitable.
This may or may not reflect your agreements or contributions.
A cohabitation agreement sets forth a clear guide for the court regarding how the parties intended to have their property divided.
Please contact the firm to schedule an appointment to have a detailed discussion about whether a cohabitation agreement is right for you and how the court typically treats them.
