Family Law : Co-Habiting (Unmarried) Partners
Are the rights the same between married people versus people who are living together?
However, there are few Ohio laws defining the rights and responsibilities of co-habitating unmarried partners.
Therefore, unmarried, co-habitating partners in Ohio–including those who break up and terminate their relationships–must look to Ohio’s general contract and property law to establish, define and enforce certain legal rights and claims with respect to their partners or ex-partners.
