    Spousal Support

    Common law spouses are often awarded less spousal support or are given support for a shorter duration than married spouses. The factors that affect entitlement to support and the amount of support are generally the same between married and common law spouses.

    Marriage Agreements

    Common law spouses can obtain the same rights as married spouses by preparing and executing a cohabitation agreement. A cohabitation or marriage agreement is a written document where the parties to the agreement can provide for division of property, support or any other matter upon death or the termination of the relationship.
