What is an Antenuptial Contract in South Africa?

In South Africa, an antenuptial contract is a legal agreement entered into by a couple before their marriage. It sets out the financial arrangements, rights, and obligations of each spouse in the event of divorce or the death of either spouse. This contract allows couples to customise the division of assets, liabilities, and financial responsibilities, offering greater control and peace of mind.

Why Choose an Antenuptial Contract?

Asset Protection

An antenuptial contract safeguards your individual assets acquired before and during the marriage. By clearly defining which assets belong to each spouse, it ensures that they remain protected and unaffected in the event of divorce or separation.

Financial Clarity

With an antenuptial contract, you can establish a clear framework for financial responsibilities and division of assets during the marriage and in the event of death. This clarity minimizes potential disputes and provides a solid foundation for financial planning.

Preservation of Inheritance

An antenuptial contract can protect inheritances and family assets, ensuring they remain within the intended bloodline. This is particularly relevant when one or both spouses come from families with significant assets or wish to preserve their inheritance for future generations.
