Before entering into a relationship it is a good idea to talk to a lawyer, even if you don’t make a family law agreement. A lot of people enter into marriages and common law relationships without understanding the very real consequences if they were to separate. Even if you think it is unlikely making a Family Law agreement before you become spouses can make your life much easier if you were to ever separate.
Family Law Agreements made before or during the relationship are typically referred to as:
- Prenuptial agreements
- Cohabitation agreements; and or
- Marriage Agreements.
Family Law Agreements made after the relationship ends are typically referred to as Separation Agreements.
