Size up your finances
The first step to ensuring that both you and your spouse or partner are financially protected is to size up your respective finances. You’ll also need to be aware of a few important legal issues. Your BCV advisor will guide you in this process and provide advice as you look to the future.
Spouses and registered partners
When you tie the knot, your tax situation will change. For starters, you'll be filing a joint tax return. And you’ll need to reassess your pension coverage in light of your new circumstances. You should also be aware that Swiss law grants spouses and registered partners certain inheritance and property-division rights in the event of divorce or death.
