Cohabitation Agreements Helping You Protect What Matters Most

Cohabitation Agreement Attorney in Cleveland

Helping Non-Married Couples Create Sound Legal Documents

More and more people are choosing to live together before getting married or just live together indefinitely without marriage.

When these relationships end, similar issues arise as in a divorce, issues such as:

  • How the shared property will be divided
  • How the shared real estate will be divided
  • How the shared debt will be divided

Since couples who decide to live together without getting married have no legal right to shared property, creating a cohabitation agreement allows both parties to outline how they would like to divide and handle certain factors.

What Is Cohabitation?

Cohabitation is commonly defined as two individuals who live together as if they were in a married partnership. Couples who choose to cohabitate and never marry do not receive the same legal protections as married couples. For this reason, it’s important to protect your property and assets in the event the two of you end your relationship and part ways.

What to Include in a Cohabitation Agreement

A cohabitation agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement because it enables a couple to create rules and a framework for how they would like certain relationship factors handled at the end of their relationship.

Commonly, couples include the following on their agreement documents:

  • How to divide property acquired during the relationship
  • How the couple divides the expenses (rent, utilities, food, etc.)
  • How the couple will resolve any disputes
  • How either party’s property will be handled should the other pass away
