Why are Property and Finance Clauses an Important Part of the Living Together Contract?

If you are like most people, unless you have kids your property and finances are the most important asset that you have.  Especially in the context of living together contracts where there is no legal boundaries other that the ones you and your living partner place on one another, you will want to pay special attention to how property and finances are handled.

Should I Hire an Attorney to Help Me with the Financial Part of my Living Together Contract?

Figuring out how assets, debt, and living expenses should be handled in a living together contract is important.  Especially if both parties come to the relationship with any kind of assets, having a lawyer look over the contract once you have agreed on its terms is a good idea.  A lawyer can also put the contract into a form that is legally binding.  Please note that is unethical for the same lawyer to represent both sides at the same time, so you should probably have two lawyers look over the agreement before you sign.
