Have you ever wondered if you acquire any rights if you live with your partner but never legally marry? This episode dives into the rights of partners in traditional, modern, and unconventional relationships. Nicole Nuzzo, Sheila Stiles, and Nicole Schmidt, family law partners of the premier firm Bremer Whyte Brown & O'Meara join Courtroom Confidential for this exciting 10-part series, Until Court Do Us Part. This series showcases some wide-ranging cautionary lessons learned from the depths of divorce court. In this episode Nicole, Nicole, and Sheila teach you the lesson: The High Cost of Living with Your Partner without a Cohabitation Agreement!

In addition, special guest Michael Julian, President of National Business Investigations, Inc., our proud series title sponsor, joins us to give insight on how private investigators work with family law attorneys to uncover the scandalous truth.

A cohabitation agreement may not be sexy, but it’s smart! The rights of unmarried versus married couples who live together to financial support, jointly acquired property, and separate property are explored in this episode. You will also hear about the double dealing ‘putative spouse’ and the rights of the legal spouse and the innocent partner. And for the untraditional relationships, if there is a legally married couple cohabitating with a third-party romantic partner, the rights of the third party.

Bremer Whyte Brown & O'Meara’s family law practice is known for representing high-net worth individuals often with complex cases. Nicole Schmidt, Nicole Nuzzo, and Sheila Stiles are partners in the firm’s Newport Beach office and are all designated specialists in the area of family law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.
