registered partnership example contract?

My partner and I are going for a registered partnership since we're against marriage, and I was wondering, what can be put in such a registered partnership document to keep it legal?

I realise this is a bit personal, and probably off the chart request, but my situation is as follows:
I am not Swiss (she is), from a country where the Swiss partnership/marriage is not recognised unless registered in my country. We can only register in my country if we both live there for a while - not going to happen (see below).
I'm coming from a powerful industrial family of backstabbers that can't see the light in someone else's eyes, particularly mine as the freedomfighter (err, inobedient) in the lot.
I'm afraid that if anything happens to me (health wise, accident, coma, or even death), they would sue my wife/partner to make the decisions "in my best interest" (their best interest, not mine).

So I would like to know how I can make sure that my partner makes the decisions if I'm incapacitated, and that if I die they can't do anything against her, or claim inheritance, etc.

What/how can this be put in our partnership to make this happen? We contacted several notaire and it seems they all just have a standard document and not know about how to foresee additional protection to my partner from within the partnership registration, for the just in case event anything should happen to me? Does anyone know?

Silly idea maybe - but if you transfer assets to her now, while you are living, I assume your family can't touch that decision.

May not be the most tax-efficient way (and perhaps someone else will have more lawyerly ideas) but it would be one solution anyway.

Good question, would also like to know how my partner can take health decisions for me if I am unable? (unmarried)

For health decisions you can go to the notary and have a "Generalvollmacht" (POA) drafted and name the person who should decide when you no longer can
