My partner and me will be having a baby in the coming months. We have been thinking in puting our salaries in a joint account but also we would like to know what’s the legal implication in case in the future we decide to split.
I have these questions:
From which point of time are we legally consider to be in a partnership where all goes 50% between us? is this really true?
Since I will be earning more than her (because of the extended maternity leave) could I deduct more expenses from the baby? Is there a better way to do the taxes?
Additionally, is there any disadvantage for not being married? I have included my partner as beneficiary of my 2nd pillar. Any other action I could take so she and the baby are covered in case of fatality?
Thanks a lot!
