Settlement cohabitees

Clear agreements vital

In the event of a termination of cohabitation, the first thing to establish is whether or not a cohabitation agreement is in place. If there is one, the agreements laid down with regard to termination must be observed.

If no cohabitation agreement was drawn up, the parties will have to mutually agree on, for instance, the house, the distribution of its contents and the distribution of other joint assets.

In both cases, agreements must be made about the care and child maintenance for minors or young adult persons (if they were born of this relationship). These agreements are laid down in a parenting plan if both parents have joint custody of the children.
