Download contract forms for cohabitation, matrimonial property, common law, parenting, separation, custody and other marital and family matters under Canadian federal and provincial laws.


A recent ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada that common law spouses in Quebec are not entitled to the same rights as married couples under the Civil Code may have legal implications in other parts of the country.

That's why it's more important than ever for common law couples to have a written cohabitation agreement in place that spells out their intentions regarding jointly and separately owned property, child support, custody issues, and spousal maintenance.

Each province and territory of Canada has its own legislation, and the legal rights of partners may differ from place to place. The Quebec ruling may encourage other provinces to review their own laws, and this could result in further Supreme Court challenges.
