If you prepare your own cohabitation agreement or using a “do-it-yourself” kit, there is a risk that:

  • The agreement may not be valid or enforceable;
  • The agreement may not say what you want it to say; and
  • The agreement may not do what you want it to do.

Family law is very complex. There is no boilerplate agreement that can be applied to every relationship. If you are making a cohabitation agreement, it is important to get legal advice to help you assess your particular situation, advise you on the law, and help you sort out what you should include in your agreement. We tailor and prepare agreements that apply to your situation.
