Common Law Marriages & Cohabitation Agreements

The state of Florida still does not recognize common law marriages . What does this mean for you? This means that if you and your partner have chosen not to get married, but want to remain committed to each other, you will need to speak with an attorney about how you can protect yourself in the event that something happens to your partner.

Jacksonville family law attorney Scott Ellerin respects all types of relationships, and is committed to helping you find the best solution for you and your partner. If you and your partner live together but simply do not want to get married, you should consider drafting a cohabitation agreement . In a cohabitation agreement you can include specific instructions for how you wish your property and assets to be divided and allocated in the event you become incapacitated or you pass away. A cohabitation agreement can also include how joint property will be divided and split in the event that you and your partner decide to break up.

Consult an Experienced Attorney about Drafting an Agreement

Without a cohabitation agreement in a place, a messy and drawn-out legal battle could ensue following an injury, illness, death, or separation. Take initiative and protect yourself, your rights, and your future by consulting an attorney about drafting a cohabitation agreement. As an experienced Jacksonville family law attorney, Scott Ellerin has helped many clients draft cohabitation agreements customized to their specific needs, and would be more than happy to provide the same service to you.
