Cohabitation Agreement

Cohabitation Agreement

Cohabitation Agreements are becoming increasingly important as more couples choose to live together without entering into marriage. We specialize in drafting Cohabitation Agreements that provide legal clarity and protection for couples in Malta.

A Cohabitation Agreement is a legal contract between partners who live together. It outlines how they will manage their financial affairs and property while cohabitating, and how these matters should be handled should the relationship end or if one partner passes away. These agreements can include details on property division, responsibility for debts, living expenses, and arrangements for support.

Our role is to provide comprehensive legal advice tailored to the specific needs and circumstances of each couple. We guide our clients through the process of understanding their legal rights and obligations as cohabitating partners. This includes a thorough discussion of their assets, liabilities, and expectations from the cohabitation arrangement.

We then draft a detailed Cohabitation Agreement that reflects the couple’s wishes and intentions. This agreement is crafted to be clear, fair, and legally binding, ensuring that both parties’ interests are protected. We pay close attention to the nuances of Maltese law to ensure that the agreement is enforceable and complies with current legal standards.

We emphasize the importance of regularly reviewing and updating the agreement to reflect any significant life changes.

Our services also include advising on any potential changes in circumstances that could affect the agreement, such as the birth of a child, a change in financial status, or the decision to marry.

At Sceberras Trigona Notaries & Associates, we understand that cohabitation is a significant life choice that requires careful legal consideration. Our commitment is to provide our clients with a secure legal framework for their cohabitation, ensuring peace of mind and protection for their shared future. Whether you are entering into a new cohabitation arrangement or seeking to formalize an existing one, our expertise guarantees a comprehensive, empathetic, and professional service.
