Are you living with your partner but have chosen not to get married? Do you share financial responsibilities? Are both your names on the mortgage? Just because you do not have a piece of paper declaring a marriage, does not mean that you do not share legal and financial responsibility in your relationship. It is a great idea to have a Cohabitation Agreement regardless of if you are married or not.
You may be treated like a married couple in some situations and should seek legal advice if there is going to be any sort of separation. Even though the word “divorce” is not being used, you are still responsible for looking after your assets, child support, and any sort of mortgage or rent payments.
It is important to keep your documents when making large financial decisions together. No one moves in together with the thought that it won’t work out; however, it is smart to keep a file of things just in case you may need them at some point. When working with our firm, we will help you to go through any and all documents that are brought up in a case. We can go through cohabitation laws and work to get you what you need and what you deserve from this case.If you have any questions regarding the practice of cohabitation lawyers or how we may be able to help you with your situation, give us a call. We would be happy to sit down with you and go over your worries or concerns.
