Cohabiting Relationships and Adult Interdependent Relationships are when two people choose to live together without getting married. In Alberta, a couple is considered to be in a common law relationship if they have lived together for three years or more, have a child or have adopted a child together, or have signed a cohabitation agreement.
Cohabitation agreements can help to ensure your rights are legally protected in the event that you and your partner choose to separate in the future. Our paralegal experts can assist you in preparing your cohabitation or adult interdependent relationship agreement. Other habitation agreements we can assist you with include roommate agreements and tenancy agreements.
