Put a Ring on It? Millennial Couples Are in No Hurry.

Tying the knot used to be a fairly commonplace in the United States for people in their 20s and maybe into their early 30s, but younger people now are changing the expected norms that earlier generations held for them.

Many millennials are now waiting to get married well into their 30s and beyond, and many are choosing not to get married at all.  They often buy houses together, have children together, share bank accounts and set up lives based on each other’s needs.

In situations where the couple chooses not to marry or marry later in life, issues can arise that leave the individuals without the same protections as those who are married before intertwining their lives together.  It's important to have a good grasp on the financial expectations of each of the parties and a full understanding of what legal rights and responsibilities each may have, should the relationship end.

A Collaborative attorney can assist couples with developing agreements that are specifically tailored to these situations and to the couple’s interests and needs, all without ever going to court.

Empowering, supportive, transformative. 
Your family deserves Collaborative.
