Yes, an Antenuptial contract, signed by a Notary and registered in the Deeds Office, is required if you want to avoid being married in community of property.
It is possible to enter into a Postnuptial Contract, however, this is an entirely different process and an application in the Court will be needed to change your marital regime from the default ‘in community of property’ regime. Contact us for more information.
As soon as you have the date you will get married, you can arrange for your contract to be registered. It is conditional on you getting married and will only come into force when you get married. It is important that it is signed by the Notary BEFORE your date of marriage
We will send you an invoice with our bank details. EFT payments are accepted
As soon as we have received proof of payment, your application form and all the information we require, we can have your contract ready and emailed to you within 24 hours. We need the originally signed contract and documents at our office before your date of marriage
- Certified ID’s and recent proof of address for both partners (not older than 3 months)
- Filled out application form
- If any assets are excluded, details of such assets such as values, account numbers, property descriptions, etc (no paperwork required)
- Proof of Payment
- If divorced, a copy of the divorce decree
If you have a certified copy of the divorce order issued by the Court, we can submit this together with your signed antenuptial contract for registration
