Cohabitation Agreements

Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as a common law husband or wife.

Unmarried couples have different legal rights and responsibilities in relation to property, finances and children.

For those who are not getting married but setting up home together, a Cohabitation Agreement can provide the framework for couples to record their intentions and respective contributions. By doing this it may help alleviate any fears they have prior to living together, as well as leaving them financially protected should the relationship breakdown.
