Cohabitation Agreements in Texas
If you are unmarried and living with your significant other in Texas, a cohabitation agreement may be something to consider. Like a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, a cohabitation agreement is a contract that may contain provisions regarding property rights and other matters. However, it is not an agreement made in contemplation of marriage or between spouses.
Cohabitation agreements can be structured specifically for parties who are living together but who are not contemplating marriage. Such agreements may set forth the parties’ rights and obligations, both during the relationship and in the event the relationship ends.
