Registering an Ante – Nuptial Contract

First of all, it is crucial to note that if you get married without an Ante Nuptial Contract, you are automatically married in community of property. But what exactly is the purpose of having an ANC?

An ANC is an agreement in black and white between two parties before entering into marriage. The agreement stipulates how assets will be dealt with in the event of divorce or death. Having an ante nuptial contract benefits you in the following ways:

  • Debt incurred by the other party, will not be affect you financially due to the ANC in place.
  • The ANC allows the parties to remain separate in estates.
  • Parties will not need each other’s consent in financial dealings.
  • Parties can maintain their own financial independence.

Ante Nuptial Contract without Accrual

When being married in community of property, no ANC is required and this can be dangerous for both parties. When a couple decides to enter marriage without an ANC, they will automatically be married in community of property – meaning both parties will have equal right to each other’s assets and there is a joint estate.

On the other hand, being married out of community of property will require an ANC and there will be no joint estate. Having said that, the parties will have their own financial independence and any debt incurred by the one party, will not affect the other.
