Cohabitation Agreements

A cohabitation agreement is a form of legal agreement between a couple who choose to live together - whether they are heterosexual or of the same sex.

Law for Women strongly advises couples to sign a cohabitation agreement in order to protect themselves from unnecessary cost and litigation if their relationship terminates. The agreement, much like a prenuptial agreement, allows the individuals to determine who will keep specific assets and what will happen to assets purchased jointly if they separate. This agreement is binding to both partners.

Living together

Whether you're a heterosexual couple or a same sex couple, a cohabitation contract clarifies financial commitments and sets out who pays what, and how responsibilities in running the home are shared.
