The background sections provide information on the purpose and context of the agreement. In other words, what has happened in the past and what do the parties want to do with respect to the conclusion of this cohabitation agreement? The “Fund” section is referred to as legal recitals.

A cohabitation agreement changes the application of the law to your situation if you separate, so it is important to get legal advice before signing. You will probably waive some rights.

B, parental leave and parental obligations) and post-separation child care.
