Orange County Marvin Action Attorneys
Our Family Lawyers Explain Palimony for Cohabitation Actions
Marvin Actions refers to the civil court actions taken by individuals who
have been cohabitating with a partner and never married. The term's
name comes from
Marvin v. Marvin, a 1976 case that involved a woman seeking support payments (or “palimony”)
and half the property acquired during her relationship with a live-in
partner after separation. The case, which was heard in a California court,
granted her a judgment in support of the oral agreement she argued existed.
This landmark case established the following principles for unmarried cohabitating couples:
- Written or oral contracts can be made by couples
- An oral contract may be implied by careful examination of the couple’s actions
