Located in Langley, BC.
Cohabitation agreements are legal contracts that are meant to guide and protect couples choosing to live together without being married.
A cohabitation agreement is a legal contract designed for couples who are living together but are not legally married. It establishes clarity in regard to the rights and obligations of each party in the relationship and can help protect both partners in the unfortunate event of a separation or disagreement. Couples are considered as spouses after living with each other for at least 2 years and potentially earlier if children are involved.
Some compelling reasons that couples may want to consider a cohabitation agreement include: financial clarity, protection of assets and determination of responsibilities. They can also cover details relating to household chores and expenses throughout relationships.
In order for a cohabitation agreement to be legally binding, it is important for both parties to voluntarily enter into such an agreement and fully understand all related details.
