Many couples choose to live together without the legal umbrella of marriage. Often, they purchase homes and other assets using shared funds. When problems arise they are not prepared and are unaware of the legal ramifications that may have arisen affecting various assets during their cohabitation. It is important to consider entering into cohabitation or co-ownership agreements, particularly as to larger assets. We at the Law Office of Deborah N. Arthur can assist you with developing an agreement beforehand or with handling issues when problems arise if you do not have an agreement in place.
