Cohabitation Agreement Toronto, Ontario

What is Cohabitation Agreement


A cohabitation agreement is a written agreement between a couple who chooses to live together but not marry. Couples who cohabitate may be considered to be in a “common law” relationship and are subject to many of the same family laws, rights and obligations as a married couple when it comes to property and support.

As such, many couples work out an agreement before or during the time they are cohabitating to outline what happens upon break up.
