In Community of Property VS Out of Community of Property
First of all, for this process to unfold legally, you need to have the guidance of a family legal expert. The legal professional will explain the different ways you can go about altering your matrimonial regime between you and your spouse.
In turn, the parties involved must gain a clear understanding of why they’re changing their property regime and how this will impact their financial situation. It is therefore the duty of the legal expert to ensure that you are doing things legally correct.
Are you married in community of property?
What is meant by this?
Well, to put it simply, all assets owned by you and your spouse are combined and belong to both of you. Why is this such a bad thing? Well it’s not necessary a bad thing but does call for major financial risks.
One could say that both, married in and out of community of property, has its financial gains and losses. If you are married in community of property, it means that both parties will receive 50% of everything owned. In addition to this, it also means that any debt incurred by your spouse while being married, is your debt as well. In the case of death, assets will be frozen until officials reach a conclusion as to who gets what and how much.
Changing in Community of Property to out Community of property
You may want to consider changing your property regime to out of community of property. This means that you will have a greater sense of financial independence. This is also recommended if you are the stronger financial partner. This way, whatever debt incurred by your partner will not affect your financial circumstances.
