While it’s hardly the stuff of romantic movies, deciding on whether to register an ante-nuptial contract (ANC), and if so, what system to apply, will dictate how your assets are regulated for the rest of your marriage or civil union. The decision to register an ANC shouldn’t be seen as preparation to protect you in a divorce, but rather as a mature decision between two adults wanting to make legally sound decisions about the way their assets will be dealt with. ANCs allows you to tailor-make their very own matrimonial property regime, provide you with contractual freedom in the future, and protect your spouse’s assets against potential creditors
Gillian Erasmus Attorneys Inc will help you ensure that your marriage contract is designed the way you want it. They have a qualified notary to provide bespoke and individual advice to help you with the first and most important step in planning your financial future together.
Very importantly – you MUST sign the contract before you get legally married / conclude your civil union. Because Gillian Erasmus Attorneys understands that most couples are taking time away from work and experience a great deal of stress regarding all the decisions they need to make, their notary is flexible in accommodating you and your schedules and happy to meet you where you are. Particularly if you have been living overseas and are only coming to South Africa for the wedding, the thought of finding a notary at short notice can be quite daunting.
Their all-inclusive fee will take care of everything – the consultation, drafting, preparing the contract, registration at the Deeds Office, and delivery to your door.
They look forward to building lifetime partnerships with their clients. As a ‘thank you’ for trusting them with the first major legal decision of your marriage/civil union, Gillian Erasmus Attorneys also offers their newly-wed clients a 15% discount on a basic will; and a 15% discount on the prescribed fee for the first transfer of immovable property (like the first house you buy), provided your seller nominates their offices as the transferring attorneys.
