In some instances, individuals entering into a committed relationship may have assets that should remain independent of the relationship. This could include inherited assets, investments or major assets that were obtained prior to the relationship, etc. In order to maintain full ownership of such assets in the event that the relationship does not survive, parties are encouraged to sign a cohabitation or pre-nuptial agreement before cohabitation or marriage. We can walk you through both the decision making process and the appropriate documentation of these agreements.
