Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.
There can sometimes be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be researching the answer to your question, helping other customers, or taking a break. If we're writing late in the evening, I may need to get some sleep and resume helping you the following morning.
Answer: The solution to your problem is a prenuptial agreement, commonly referred to as a "prenup."
You and your BF should each have your own attorney to represent you. Some couples find it helpful to use a mediator to help work out things over which they disagree. In a way, it's like a divorce in reverse.
You can put more than just financial matters in a prenup. You can include anything you can think of, from who will benefit from a retirement account to who takes out the garbage.
I know it may seem strange, but you're being very, very smart to ask the question. Going through the prenup process will also help you learn more about one another.
Look for family law attorneys to help you with this process. Good luck to both of you!
I'd be happy to answer follow-up questions.
