Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding!
The most important thing about your big day, apart from the flowers, the dress and the photographer will be the promise that you make to the one you love in front of all the witnesses present.
Although this will be the most beautiful day of your life, the legal implications of this big step should be crystal clear to both you and your betrothed. An appointment with an attorney is not the most exciting part of organizing your wedding, but in order to have a financially secure future, it is very important to know the legal position surrounding your choice.
We aim to make this experience as pleasant as possible.
Your marriage will be In Community of Property if you marry without an ante-nuptial contract. To protect your assets from your spouse’s creditors, you must enter into an ante-nuptial contract before the conclusion of the marriage. This contract dictates your financial future after marriage, how you transact with third parties and directs how your assets will be distributed on divorce and on death.
Ignorance of the law is no excuse. A High Court application to change your marital status afterward your special day will be costly and expose you to unnecessary risks.
With the right attorney and legal information, you can make informed decisions. At VGV we will ensure that the appropriate attorney is allocated to you for your specific needs to ensure a personalised service that delivers exceptional results.
