Cohabitation Agreements in Ontario | RRM Law

Separation Agreement

Whether two people are married or in a common-law partnership and have made the decision to live apart, they can legally bind each other with a separation agreement. The terms and conditions regulating the division of assets, the responsibility and support for making decisions for the children, spousal support, and other pertinent issues are all outlined in this document. A separation agreement acts as a thorough guide for each party's rights and obligations during the separation time, even though it does not provide a divorce. By laying out precise rules, it makes the transition easier and gives everyone involved clarity.

Cohabitation Agreement

In Ontario, unmarried couples who intend to live together or who are already cohabiting, including common-law spouses, may enter into a cohabitation agreement as a legal contract. Couples can create a framework for their rights, obligations, and responsibilities in the partnership using this agreement. It addresses a number of topics, including support and responsibility for child decision-making, financial issues, property partition, and other provisions. Couples can resolve ambiguities and disagreements by drafting a cohabitation agreement, which provides security and clarity for all parties.
