Product Description

Living together out of wedlock can mean anything, especially in court -- unlike married couples, most unmarried couples don't automatically inherit or receive protection under the law. Consequently, you must document everything from property ownership and children to wills and other estate plans. An essential resource for any unmarried couple, Living Together explains:

The legality of living together;
Having and raising children;
The many types of ownership agreements;
Relationships with a prior family;
Getting authorization to make medical decisions for an ill or injured partner.

Living Together includes:
A complete overview of important legal documents, including a living together contract;
Instructions to filling out these documents;
Sample forms;
Legal agreements as tear-outs and on CD-ROM.

This edition provides the latest law in readable 50-state charts, and includes many fill-in-the-blank legal forms. It has new information on recent changes to tax laws, such as the "marriage penalty" and estate taxes. It also covers government and private companies that offer domestic partner benefits.

Table of Contents includes:
Living Together: An Introduction;
The Legal State of Living Together;
Living Together Agreements: Why and How;
Debt, Credit, Taxes, and More: Practical Aspects of Living Together;
Renting and Sharing a Home;
Buying a House Together;
Starting a Family;
