Cohabitation Agreements

Cohabitation Agreement Attorney in Jacksonville

Protect Your Rights with a Cohabitation Agreement

When two parties live together as a couple, it may be important to enter into a "cohabitation agreement" to protect the rights of the parties involved. There are many cases in which individuals live together for years, and upon the death of one of the parties, the remaining individual has no legal rights.

Without a cohabitation agreement, the surviving party may:

  • Be forced to move out from the property that was a shared home
  • Lose personal property

There are a variety of circumstances that could come to pass when two partners cohabit in Florida. It is important that you get the legal advice necessary from a Jacksonville divorce attorney. At Hutchinson Law, a Jacksonville divorce attorney can advise you on any aspect of such agreements. We are prepared to carefully draft the agreements that you require to protect your rights.

Understanding Florida's Laws

There are a wide variety of circumstances that may exist for individuals in need of a cohabitation agreement. It is possible that one party wants to ensure that they protect their property and assets from a future claim by the live-in partner; or alternatively, they want to provide for the partner in the event of their death. When the two parties are not married and do not have a valid marriage contract, these agreements must be carefully drafted with the Florida courts in mind.

Florida has several archaic laws that remain on the books; for example, it is actually illegal in Florida to have a sexual relationship in cohabitation. This law has not yet been removed from the laws of the state and even though it is likely that a judge may tend to ignore this archaic law, it does become an issue in cohabitation agreements.

Assistance from Hutchinson Law

It is important that the Jacksonville family law attorney you choose is well-skilled in the creation of a cohabitation agreement so that every aspect of the issues that can come up in court are covered as thoroughly as possible. A cohabitation agreement is generally considered to be similar to a prenuptial agreement that is drafted for those who live together as a couple, but are not legally married. With the help of Hutchinson Law, you can protect your future and your rights with the drafting of a cohabitation agreement.
