Access to couple or joint files will not automatically be given to one partner (or a legal representative). Access to couple or joint files will not be released without the prior written consent of both partners. Where information is sought by a third party, written consent by both partners must be sought before any information will be released.
Where applicable, any information released without proper written consent by both partners, will pertain soley to the individual making the request. In this case, any and all references made to/about the second partner will be withheld.
