Cohabitation agreements exist for couples who are not married, but are in a relationship or common-law marriage, and want to protect their property and assets in case of a separation. Cohabitation agreements automatically become marriage agreements in the event of a marriage, however certain terms from a cohabitation agreement may not be legally binding in a marriage contract, therefore the contract may need to be redrafted after marriage. Cohabitation agreements are legal documents, which is why you may need a lawyer to draft the agreement, or to offer advice in order to protect your rights.
