Antenuptial Contract Registration - Register Antenuptial Contract before getting Married. Explore your Marital Regime Options. Easy online Process.

If you do not enter into an Antenuptial Contract prior to your marriage, you will automatically be married in community of property in terms of South African Law. Both parties’ individual estates will be combined into one jointly owned estate by the marriage. This means that all per-marital assets, debt and liabilities are all pooled into one estate once the marriage is concluded, from which point onwards, only one jointly owned estate will exist. Both parties will be jointly liable for debt-repayment towards their combined creditors, irrespective whom incurred the debt. There are basically only two marital regimes in terms of South African Law:
  1. In community of property; or
  2. Out of community of property with application of the accrual system.
  3. Out of community of property without application of the accrual system

If not a signatory to The Hague Convention, full document legalisation by the foreign country's Embassy or Consulate in Australia is required in place of an Apostille Certificate.
