Whether moving in together, getting married, or separating from a spouse, it is worth spending time to identify the important issues that you want to capture in an agreement.
A family lawyer can make sure the agreement contains language that will help to protect you through the ups and downs of your relationship.
Don’t dodge this simple step: it will cost you time, money, and heart-break in the long run.
It can be hard to have a conversation about matters of the heart. But you know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As hard as it is to get into – or out of – a relationship, taking this time to craft an effective agreement can be worth its weight in gold.

You have gotten a good head start at a written agreement. You’ve hashed out some terms that work for both parties. How enforceable is that agreement? Is it written well? Will it stand up in court in the worst-case scenario? We will answer those questions.
TAKING A STAND
You think you and your partner are on the same page. For a while now, you’ve been limping along with some common understanding. You thought you had an agreement, but time and again the plan changes. It might be time to take a stand – and get it in writing.
