Antenuptial Contracts in South Africa

Wedding paper work and antenuptial contracts are hardly the most exhilarating part of the wedding planning process, and can be quite painful and tedious if you don't have any knowledge on the subject. Appointing a professional counsellor is therefore critical in ensuring that you've covered all your bases, and that you're not only emotionally ready to tie the knot, but legally as well

In this section of the site, you'll find numerous well-respected South African marriage lawyers, or rather lawyers who specialise in all things matrimonial. These highly skilled and experienced professionals will be able to assist you with any type of legal wedding contracts and paperwork that might be weighing on the back of your mind, taking the pressure off your heavily laden shoulders.

Antenuptial agreements are renowned for being quite a tender topic – not something any couple wants to think about when they can hardly bear the thought of spending an hour apart. It's important to realise however, that the only time the antenuptial agreement will come into play, is when you’re standing in the divorce court. Hence, let it never be said, “If you really love me, you wouldn't expect me to sign a legal agreement”.

Marriage is a big step as it is – giving up life as you know it to share in a brand new journey with a person whom you hope to spend forever with. Luckily, with so many ways in which to customise a legal wedding contract to your fancy, there's really no reason to fear the future – after all, if a simple antenuptial agreement can make the prospect of marriage less daunting, why wouldn’t you want to sign on the dotted line?

Antenuptial Contracts FAQs

When must an antenuptial contract be signed?

An antenuptial contract must be signed before a couple marries and must be signed before a notary and 2 witnesses. Once the contract has been signed, the contract agreement is lodged with the Registrar of Deeds.

Can you get a prenup after you get married?

No, unfortunately not. To set up a contract similar to a prenuptial or antenuptial contract after you are married would be called a postnuptial contract. In order to do this, you would need to receive consent from the High Court which could be more costly, so couples should rather get the antenuptial setup before marrying.

How long does it take to draw up a prenuptial agreement?

This very much depends on the complexity of your contract. Generally speaking, the more assets you have, businesses you own, debt you or your partner are in, etc will increase the complexities of the contract and what needs to be taken into account. These complexities as well as the schedule of the antenuptial attorneys will also dictate how long your contract will take to be setup. Make sure to ask your attorney for dates on when you can expect your first draft to be ready and when you and your partner can have it completed and signed to ensure your expectations are managed and you are sure to have your contract set up in time before you marry.
