According to a poll by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, divorce lawyers are seeing an increase in prenuptial-like agreements, called cohabitation agreements, between unmarried couples.
Since states do not have cohabitation laws, if your significant other has debts or if you buy a house together, a cohabitation agreement can dictate how assets and debts are divided. For unmarried couples wanting to start a family together, cohabitation agreements are especially important.
Like a prenuptial agreement, cohabitation agreements can address child custody matters and support obligations for unmarried couples with children.

Kimberly Buffington-Quaid, actor Dennis Quaid’s third wife, filed for divorce earlier this month in Austin after seven years of marriage. According to the divorce petition, the conflict of personalities has prevented any hope of reconciliation.
Buffington-Quaid, an Austin real estate agent, is seeking spousal support and attorney fees. A temporary custody order filed earlier this month states that both parents will have access to their twins and that neither parent can remove the children from school or the state without consent.
The couple has two children, twins, born in 2007. They made national headlines as newborns after they almost died when a nurse accidentally administered an overdose of a blood thinner.

Kelsey Grammer and ex-wife Camille, former Playboy Playmate and star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, have finally ended their bitter child custody battle this week two years after filing for divorce.
Kelsey and Camille have two children together, a 10 year-old daughter and a 7 year-old son. According to court documents, both children will stay with Camille in Los Angeles and Kelsey will be able to have contact.
Kelsey allegedly wanted to have custody of his son and move him to Chicago, but Camille resisted, stating that it would disrupt his education. Kelsey later claimed he never made such a suggestion.

According to a survey of American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, divorce lawyers say they have seen a noticeable increase in pet custody cases from 2001 to 2006.
In every state, pets are considered property and for years have been divided between divorcing spouses as such. However, now judges are treating pets in the middle of a divorce more like children than furniture. Pet custody decisions can be made with or without a lawyer.
Laws have recently been passed in several states that protect animals in domestic violence restraining orders. As pets are only becoming more and more a part of the family structure, laws and statutes on pet custody could be passed in the near future.
