Common Law Marriage and Your Rights

Have you been living with your partners for years? If so, you may qualify for common law marriage. Depending on what state you live in, the laws regarding a common law marriage can vary. However, the basic premise of common law marriage is the same: two people that have been living together as a couple for a certain period of time will be considered by law to be in a common marriage.

While you do not have to actually do anything to qualify for a common law marriage, you can use your status under such to gain certain benefits. You may be eligible for some of the same benefits that traditionally married couples in your state enjoy.

To learn whether common law marriages are legal unions in your state, contact Hutchinson Law immediately. Speak with a Jacksonville family law attorney about the details of your relationship to discover your rights according to the family laws of Florida.
