The domestic relation laws will not apply to you if you and your partner ever separate, leaving your assets and your children unprotected. A domestic partnership agreement or cohabitation agreement can help protect you if the relationship fails.

Similar to premarital agreements, domestic partnership agreements serve as an insurance policy to help eliminate potential conflicts. Domestic partnership agreements can be as simple or complex as you want defining how property and custody matters would be handled in the event of a separation. Taking this proactive measure to address important issues upfront can help avoid the possibility of dissolving a domestic partnership.
