Family Law

Cohabitation Agreements

Pellettieri, Rabstein & Altman lawyers often recommend prenuptial agreements (also called pre-marital agreements) and cohabitation agreements to encourage communication about the couple’s finances and to provide peace of mind to the couple, especially to those clients entering into marriage, cohabitation or domestic partnership who have significant pre-existing assets, business interests, or debts.

New Jersey family law recognizes marital contracts – prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements, as well as cohabitation and domestic partnership agreements – in determining equitable distribution of assets as well as alimony and support. Marital agreements can establish the foundation for eventual marital separation agreements, marital settlement agreements (also known as property settlement agreements, divorce mediation agreements), and divorce or palimony judgments.

If separation and/or divorce become necessary, our family law attorneys work with you to enforce the prenuptial agreement, cohabitation agreement, or domestic partnership agreement through litigation or mediation.
