Marriage & Cohabitation

Marriage Contracts and Cohabitation Agreements

Getting married or moving in with a partner are important life events that bring with them legal rights and obligations that you may not be aware of. These rights and obligations are different for married couples and for common law couples, and the rules that apply on the breakdown of a relationship may not be what you expect or consider fair. Whether you are considering marriage or are living with your partner, it is important to learn about how the law will affect you in the event that your relationship ends. If you and your partner agree that you would like to decide for yourselves how your property will be divided and whether spousal support may be owing at the end of your relationship, then make an appointment to talk to us about a Marriage Contract or a Cohabitation Agreement. We can help you to protect your property and your income in the event of a separation.
