Developing Effective, Protective Cohabitation Agreements

In some situations, such as applying for a mortgage or determining child support, domestic partners are treated the same as married couples. However, this is not the case when it comes to things such as inheritance or pension plans. Our Houston domestic partnership attorneys work with both heterosexual and homosexual domestic partners, helping them develop effective plans to protect the financial and legal aspects of their relationships.

A properly drafted cohabitation agreement can help couples proactively outline shared responsibilities and plan for future needs, such as:

  • Designating a partner as a health care agent through advance directives
  • Naming a partner as a conservator or guardian should the other become incapacitated
  • Addressing how expenses such as utilities and mortgage payments will be covered
  • Outlining how parental roles will be preserved should the relationship end
  • Determining how mutual property will be divided should the relationship end or upon a partner's death

Cohabitation agreements can be complex. The lawyers at Hayes & Wilson, PLLC, will work closely with you to ensure that the plan achieves your objectives. We also help unmarried couples create enforceable wills and trusts to protect their family's future and pass their property as they prefer, without going through heirship determination in probate court. We carefully review every detail and are committed to guiding you through the legal process to protect your assets and plan for the future.
