Marital Agreements

We draft premarital and marital agreements especially in complicated international situations, with an eye to balance, fairness and preserving harmony.

It is important to keep in mind the couple’s marital property regime, which can be any of the following:

  • Separate property;
  • Community property of aquets or ganancial property;
  • Universal community property (very seldom);
  • The German Zugewinngemeinschaft.

The marital regime depends on the following factors:

  • Nationalities;
  • Place of marriage;
  • Election made at the marriage;
  • Domicile at the time of the marriage;
  • Domicile after the marriage;
  • Election made after the marriage.
