Civil Marriages

All civil marriages are automatically In Community of Property. This means that there is one estate shared between wife and husband. This is called the Joint Estate. Therefore, if any one of the spouses incurs a debt, that debt belongs to both of them. Sometimes a change in matrimonial property regime would be sensible.

Out of Community of Property

The other option is to get married Out of Community of Property. This means that there are two separate estates and each party is responsible for his or her own debt. Therefore, for some people this would be a better option, especially if you are a business person. If you never followed this option and would like to change, it is possible. You however require the consent of the High Court.
