What are domestic contracts?

Domestic contracts are legal agreements entered into by people wishing to set their own terms in their relationships with one another and include cohabitation agreements, marriage contracts and separation agreements.

To be legally binding, the contract must be in writing and signed by each person in the presence of a witness.  The contract will not be enforceable if either party has coerced the other into signing or has failed to provide complete financial disclosure.
