Body:

Joint borrowers are people who sign an agreement to borrow money together. For example, a couple may jointly submit a credit card application or sign a loan agreement. Joint borrowers are equally responsible for paying back the entire amount of the loan. They are sometimes called ‘co-borrowers’. A joint borrower is not the same as a guarantor.

Title: joint custody
Topic:
Body:

Joint custody is a type of custody where both parents must agree on important decisions that affect their child. It includes decisions about the child's health, education, and religion. One parent cannot decide these things without the other parent agreeing.

Other people, for example, grandparents, can also apply to the court for custody.

Title: joint debt
Body:

A joint debt is a debt that you owe with another person. For example, a mortgage you co-signed with a spouse or partner is a joint debt. Everyone on a joint debt is responsible for paying back the full amount of the debt.

Title: just cause
Body:

An employer may say they have "just cause" to fire you. If they do have just cause, they don't have to give you notice of termination.

A court might decide that your employer had just cause if you did something that was serious misconduct or you failed almost completely to do your job. The court looks at all the circumstances, including how long you have worked for the employer.
