The Law on Marital Relations defines the procedure for the separation of property upon dissolution of marriage, according to which property will be divided equally between the spouses.
A marriage contract is a unique contract between spouses / cohabites that regulates rights and property issues and determines the procedure for separation of property upon divorce. Within the framework of the marriage contract, the parties determine at their discretion how the property would be divided between them in the event of divorce.
In other words, this agreement gives the parties legal and economic security in the event of separation and ensures that no financial dispute will arise between the parties during the divorce or separation.
At the time of drawing up the marriage contract, both the existing property of the spouses / cohabitants and the property that they are going to accumulate during their life together are taken into account.
We emphasize that the marriage agreement is important and necessary not only in the case when there is a significant economic gap between the parties, but also for couples who do not have much property on the eve of marriage or at the beginning of their life together, since in the future their economic situation may change.
Moreover, distribution of property according to the marriage contract in the event of separation refers not only to ordinary financial issues, such as an apartment or a car, but also includes other issues, such as reputation, social rights, etc.
In our office you can conclude a marriage agreement before marriage and also make a postnuptial agreement during marriage / coupledom and secure your financial future in the event of a separation.
