Financial Agreements Financial Agreements

What should you do if you want a binding financial agreement?

If you want a binding financial agreement, then you will need to discuss the following with your partner beforehand:

• who will work during the relationship?

• is there a plan to have children?

• are there children from previous relationships?

• what happens if either partner can no longer work?

• what happens if a child has a disability or illness requiring significant care?

• what are your retirement goals?

• will assets be joint or separate?
