Effective Legal Advice For Creating Cohabitation Agreements

Similar to prenuptial agreements, or marriage contracts, a cohabitation agreement outlines how common-law couples will divide their affairs in the event of a separation.

At Henderson Heinrichs LLP, our legal team offers over 20 years of experiencing assisting common-law couples with resolving their disputes. Based in Vancouver, British Columbia and Edmonton, Alberta, we leverage this experience by helping common-law couples draft effective cohabitation agreements that protect their legal rights before the breakdown of a relationship.

Leverage Two Decades Of Family Law Experience

With our extensive history resolving disputes amongst common-law couples, we can assist you with drafting provisions that are fair, legal and enforceable. It's important to understand that British Columbia generally treats married and unmarried couples the same way, while Alberta does not currently have legislation governing common-law partners (known as interdependent relationships).

We have comprehensive experience in applying existing family law legislation and common law principles to different situations in both provinces, including the settlement of finances, real estate, personal property and other domestic matters.

Walking You Through The Legal Process

At Henderson Heinrichs LLP, our family lawyers will not recite legal information back to you - we provide you with:

  • A big-picture perspective of your goals
  • The different ways you can pursue your goals
  • The potential risks involved
