Cohabitation Agreement

Cohabitation Agreement


Our cohabitation agreements are designed to take away the legal and financial complications of living with your partner.  We understand the significance of taking that big step and we are here to help you make it easier.


The Cohabitation Agreement package allows parties to waive out of various legal remedies that apply to common-law partners.  It simply sets out that property is divided based on ownership.  The parties also have the option to opt out of various legal claims such as spousal support, trust claims to property, claims to other party's estate upon death and claims against pensions. The agreement can be tailored to your specific needs and it will become a marriage contract in the event you get married.  This avoids the costs of creating a separate agreement on marriage.

In this package:

  • The process starts with a virtual meeting between you and an experienced family law lawyer who will explain Ontario laws pertaining to common-law relationships; how domestic contracts work; and, your options.

  • You will have a chance to speak with your partner before providing us with instructions as to the terms you wish to include in the agreement.

  • We will draft the agreement which will be sent to you for review before execution.  It is always a good idea to review the document with your partner.

  • Once finalized we will execute the agreement with you either virtually or in our office.

  • You will be provided with four (4) copies.

  • Your partner will then meet with their lawyer and execute all 4 copies.

  • All commissioning and notarization fees are included.

  • A Certificate of Independent Legal Advice will be provided with your agreement.

If you have any questions or to book a free consultation, please contact us via e-mail , text or by calling us at (416) 939-5922.
