Cohabitation Agreements for Western Canadian Families

Cohabitation Agreement Family Lawyers in Western Canada BC Alberta

Cohabitation is living with a partner without getting married. Many couples in Canada do this very happily, committing to sharing possessions, assets and living costs without ever “tying the knot”.

Cohabiting couples who live together and are not married do not have the same legal protections as those who are divorced. If they break up, there is no standard process to follow unlike divorce which is governed by family law.

If you don’t have a document that legally protects your interests and outlines how to divide assets/debts, complications can occur after separation.

If you want to avoid relationship disputes down the line, Spectrum Family Law can help design a cohabitation agreement that outlines asset ownership and other key parts of your partnership. We have teams in both Alberta and British Columbia who are experts on these types of agreements.
