Cohabitation agreements deal with what happens when 2 people live together and establish what will happen if the relationship ends or if they subsequently marry.

If you are considering entering into a Cohabitation agreement, it is important to seek legal advice from a knowledgeable family law lawyer and to do it well in advance before the cohabitation begins. It is important to know what your rights are under Law BEFORE you agree to waive them or override them.

Cohabitation agreements can deal with property and support issues, but not the right to custody or or access to their children. These are the rights of the children and cannot be bargained away by their parents. These agreements deal with financial issues such as how money will be managed during the relationship and how assets will be divided in the event of separation if at all. At the Peter D. Eberlie Family Law Practice, we understand that these contracts can be sensitive in nature, and we will work closely with you to ensure that the process goes smoothly and that the final result is an agreement that protects your interests and rights.

If the 2 parties marry – then the Cohabitation Agreement becomes a Marriage Contract.
