About Cohabitation and Marriage Agreements
A marriage agreement or cohabitation agreement is the Canadian version of what is known as a prenuptial agreement in the United States. The main difference between these two agreements is that unlike a marriage agreement, a cohabitation agreement involves those who are in a relationship but have no intent to marry. In both cases, these documents specify the terms to be followed in case of a separation.
Marriage or cohabitation agreements are strongly recommended for relationships where one individual has a higher net worth than the other, or there have been unequal contributions to a shared home. A clear agreement drafted by a cohabitation and marriage agreement lawyer can help prevent the assets of the higher net worth individual from being divided upon separation.
If you are married or in a common-law relationship, it is always a good idea to have a marriage or cohabitation agreement drafted. Contact our lawyers today to book a consultation.
