Congratulations, if you have found the person that you want to move in with or spend the rest of your life with.
However you choose to establish a home and potentially build a family with your romantic partner, it makes good sense to plan for a rainy day. Whether you want to live together, marry or enter a civil partnership there are some big decisions to be made when you start to pool your financial resources, purchase property together and start a family.
While romance is in the air, it is important to discuss these key decisions and consider what might happen if things go wrong – just as you insure your home in the event of fire or flood.
A ‘romantic contract’ can provide some clarity and documentation in regard to your intentions, and options which we can advise on include:
- cohabitation agreements;
- postnuptial agreements;
- pre-civil partnership agreements; and
- pre-nuptial agreements.
Contact our expert family lawyers for an informal discussion regarding any of these romantic contracts.
