There is a time in any relationship that things don’t seem to be working. At times like those, it’s important to get advice from someone who has experience with strained relationships and before you enter the legal arena. 


As in all cases, we do the best we can to make this as stress-free an experience as possible. You can rest easy knowing your situation will be resolved in a timely and organized manner. 


Before you get married, it’s important to be clear on certain expectations with your significant other. These expectations may include things like your property, assets, or financial burdens like debt.


If you decide to move in with your significant other and the relationship is long-term, you might consider writing a cohabitation agreement. This contract would allow each person in the relationship to define their assets, liabilities, and expectations.
