Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Nolo is one of the most popular -- and most trusted -- publishers of legal guides for nonlawyers. This book confronts the legal gray area of couples living together. The marriage contract contains recognized rights and responsibilities. People who live together need to create legal safeguards, including ownership agreements and authorization to make medical decisions for a partner.
American Woman
This easy-to-follow guide covers situations like buying a house, adopting children, and splitting your income and writing a will.
Esquire
Includes Nolo's trademark dead on advice as well as sample contracts that can save you some legal fees.
