Why a Cohabitation Agreement?
Without legal marriage, California courts don't recognize individual assets as community in a cohabitation arrangement. In fact, palimony cases are treated as breach of contract rather than family law cases. Because they do not distinguish between separate and community property, you may put more at risk in a palimony case than in a divorce. The courts often interpret implied agreements as a legally binding contract. If it looks like a marriage, and the parties take on roles of spouses, the court may decide that financial assets should be shared.
Cohabitation agreements can offer the following benefits:
- A formal cohabitation agreement can protect property, financial holdings, and other rights in a court of law.
- A cohabitation agreement can prevent claims against your property in the event of a separation.
- A sound cohabitation agreement can actually make separation more amicable by leaving nothing to question.
- A cohabitation agreement can also establish certain rights for the other party in the event of death during the relationship.
As a Beverly Hills palimony attorney, Cary Goldstein’s priority is protecting your income and property from possible claims should a non-marital relationship end.
