Q.: What is the benefit of having a cohabitation/prenuptial agreement?

A.:            This type of agreement should assist the parties in resolving many of their legal issues in the event of separation without significant costs or conflict. Common-law separations and divorces can cost each party thousands to tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees, and may result in prolonged legal proceedings which create a property division that they did not desire or contemplate during their relationship, or other circumstances they consider unconscionable or unfair to either party.
