When you have found that special someone with whom you feel you could spend the rest of your life, you may not initially think about a co-habitation agreement or a pre-nuptial agreement. However, a little bit of forethought can save many headaches later down the road. These types of agreements are not just useful in the case where the relationship breaks down; they can also help other family members understand what both of your intentions were if, later on, that becomes questionable and you are not there to answer the questions.
If you are, or your future spouse or partner is, bringing significant assets, children, or both into this new relationship, a pre-nuptial agreement or a co-habitation agreement will help protect all parties. Make sure your future and that of your family is secure by having a skilled lawyer assist you in drafting a relationship agreement tailored to your needs.
