Living Together

It’s a natural step in many relationships and a question that can cause a lot of thought and drama: Should we move in together? As wonderful an experience as it can be, living together, also called cohabitation, can sometimes also result in legal issues unforeseen at the time a couple decides to move in together. And while we have plenty of sources for emotional advice regarding cohabitation, we may not be aware of the legal matters that can arise from moving in together. FindLaw’s Living Together sub-section of FindLaw's Family Law Center can provide legal information and resources for unmarried couples who live together (or are considering doing so).
