Knowledge and Experience. When You Need it Most.

Premarital, Cohabitation & Separation Agreements

No one wants to consider that their marriage or common law arrangement will end. However, a premarital or cohabitation agreement offers more than a roadmap to ending your relationship. It also offers a framework for handling money and property issues as you start your lives together. Donnell Law Group serving southern Ontario is experienced in all aspects of family law and can draft an agreement to meet your unique needs.


Customized Agreements Put You in Control

All marrying couples have a prenuptial agreement. It’s called divorce law. A customized premarital and/or separation agreement allows you and your partner to take control of your affairs rather than leaving them in the hands of the government.


Protect Your Rights with a Cohabitation Agreement

Common law relationships are quite common, yet people don’t know or misunderstand their rights in this type of arrangement. A cohabitation agreement provides legal protection for the parties involved and will fully explain your rights.


Some reasons to consider a premarital, cohabitation or separation agreement:

  • If one of you has significantly greater assets than the other
  • If one of you earns more money or you intend one partner to stop working to raise your family
  • If it’s not the first marriage for one or both of you; an agreement is particularly important when there are children from previous relationships
  • A prenuptial agreement can ensure that your estate planning is effective and that your assets are distributed according to your wishes
  • If one of you has a high debt load
  • If one of you owns a business; if the relationship ends, the business might be considered a joint asset without a premarital or cohabitation agreement in place

We will ensure that your rights, and those of your family, are protected.
