Domestic Partnerships & Cohabitation Agreements

Domestic Partnership and Cohabitation Agreements

The concerns of people in domestic partnership or cohabitation agreements mirror those of people who are involved in traditional marriages.

  • What will I do in case of a sudden illness?
  • How will my children be cared for?
  • How can I safeguard my assets if we split up?
  • What shall we consider as joint property?

Dissolution of domestic partnerships and cohabitation agreements can be every bit as difficult as a divorce of two married people. It is important for all parties entering into these types of situations to protect their rights with the help of an experienced attorney.

Protect Your Assets With a Cohabitation Agreement
