Unmarried Couples

Home > Practice Areas > Modern Families > Unmarried Couples

Unmarried couples face many of the same financial challenges of married couples but without the benefit of a cohesive body of law to guide them. At Gentile, Horoho & Avalli, P.C., our experienced divorce attorneys have prepared and negotiated cohabitation agreements to help our clients navigate these uncharted waters in the event of separation. A cohabitation agreement, much like a prenuptial agreement, is a contract which defines unmarried parties’ rights and responsibilities to each other in the event they separate.

As with married spouses, parties in long-term relationships want to ensure their property goes to their loved ones in the event of their death and that their loved ones may make medical or financial decisions for them in the event of their illness or incapacity. Our seasoned estate planning team can provide you with the tools you need to protect your long-term goals and prepare for your future.
