The Matrimonial Property Act 88 of 1994 applies to the proprietary aspects of marriages concluded after 1 November 1984 and the matrimonial property system elected under the Act has a direct consequence on your financial future and the position of your assets. Should you not enter into any form of AnteNuptial contract before your wedding day, your marriage will be 'in community of property" automatically. The 3 primary marital regimes are: 1. In community of property; 2. Out of community of property excluding the accrual system; and 3. Out of community of property with application of the accrual system. There is no "one size fits all" regime that is suited to everyone. Every couple should discuss their current circumstances and future needs with us, to be guided on the regime best suited to their individual needs. An elected marital regime becomes relevant in the following instances: - Divorce - Donations between spouses - Estate planning - Household requirements - Income tax considerations - Insolvency - Legal claims against spouses Our AnteNuptial service comprises: 1. An initial joint consultation with both parties to explain and discuss the different marital regimes available under South African law; enabling you to make an informed decision. 2. Drawing of formal documents and the contract. 3. Traversing the contract drawn and attending to signature thereof. 4. Officiating by a Notary. 5. Lodgement and registration at the Deeds Office. 6. Provision of the requisite Notary letter as required by the marriage officer. 7. Provision of the duly registered contract after registration at the Deeds Office. We look forward to facilitating the legal formalities, to ensure that your wedding day is all about you, your partner and your special day.
