Unmarried Couples

Today many couples live together without obtaining any formal recognition of their relationship. Most states, including Pennsylvania, do not recognize gay or lesbian marriage. These couples, opposite sex and same sex couples are intimate partners but yet legal strangers.

Issues to think about if you fall into this category of relationship:

  • If you acquire real and personal property together, how can it be divided?
  • What, if any, tax consequences will arise upon the sale of such property?
  • How can agreements be enforced?
  • What if you are raising a family together?
  • Do you have estate plans to protect one another?
