Couples who are either unable or unwilling to get married face particular challenges with regard to estate planning. If one person wants to leave property to his or her significant other, he or she needs to have a will in place that states these wishes. This is also the case with guardianship of children, should anything happen to the primary parent. Conversely, if an individual does not wish to appoint guardianship or leave property to the other, he or she must take steps to ensure a common-law marriage isn't established. Regardless of whether you are in a common-law marriage, domestic partnership or other cohabitation arrangement, it is wise to seek legal guidance from an experienced lawyer.
