Find a lawyer to help you answer your legal questions.

  • My Legal Briefcase

    We have been living together without being married for 11 years and have one child. We have a house and a car we bought together and lots of furniture. We're not getting along and we are talking about splitting up. Can we write a separation agreement?

    Yes. Common law couples can write and sign separation agreements in the same way married couples can. You can include whatever you both want in your agreement. It is important for each of you to see different lawyers before signing the agreement.
