Broomfield Common Law Marriage Lawyer

Common law marriage is based on the partners' agreement to be husband and wife followed by the assumption of a marital relationship. Two factors to be considered in determining a common law marriage are cohabitation and a reputation in the community as a married couple. Benefits of a common law marriage include the right of a person to inherit assets in the event of his or her spouse's death and the right to spousal support and an equitable division of property if the marriage ends.
