Are you in a common law relationship? Or about to move in with someone and start a new life together? Do you know and understand the financial implications of living common law? Are you concerned about the welfare of your children you're bringing into a common law relationship? Are you concerned about protecting assets you're bringing into the relationship? Expecting an inheritance down the road? Have you thought about what happens when a common law relationship breaks down-what happens surrounding custody, property division, support, and an existing will or power of attorney? Have you thought about a cohabitation agreement and how it can simplify your life? There is much confusion over what a common law relationship is and means to the partners in terms of  any children, business associates, property and investments. Committed and Moving In Together is a practical, step-by-step guide to understanding what a common law union is and what rights and obligations the partners have.
