Cohabitation (Living Together) and Nuptial Agreements
If you are thinking about getting married, moving in with your partner or you already live together but want financial security, it may be worthwhile considering a pre-nuptial agreement or cohabitation agreement.
Cohabitation agreements allow you and your partner to plan for the future and if there were a separation, to have peace of mind as to your respective financial positions. They can be particularly useful when one party is contributing more towards the household or to the initial purchase amount, than the other.
Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements are a clear indication of the parties’ intentions and are a good way of protecting pre-acquired wealth or inheritance.
