Cohabitation Agreements

We’re here to discuss your options when you choose to live with someone

Entering into an cohabitation agreement can relieve some stress in the future.

We understand that some people chose to live together, rather than enter into a marriage or civil partnership. If this is your decision, we are here to discuss with you your options.

As a cohabitee, you will have less rights and fewer remedies than those who marry or enter into a civil partnership. This can make ending a relationship particularly stressful. Entering into an agreement can relieve some of that stress. The agreement will apply while you are living together and establish rights if you and your partner then decide to end the relationship.

The agreement can cover matters such as:

  1. Ownership of real and personal property;
  2. Finances (for example: how divide bills and resolve ownership of joint accounts); and
  3. Children (for example: their maintenance and surnames).

As a result, you may wish to enter into an agreement so that fewer issues arise at the end of a relationship. We are here to listen to you, provide you with advice and get the best possible outcome for you.
