Matrimonial agreements

"Property arrangements between spouses"

To regulate their property interests spouses can choose from several options. The default legal property regime of the spouses, unless they choose otherwise, is the joint estate; but spouses may enter into a special matrimonial agreement to choose a different regime, such as the separation of property.

Other special rules are laid down for the “capital fund”, whereby either spouse or both or a third party may designate certain assets to meet the needs of the family. 

It is important to involve your notary for he has specific knowledge of the subject and is able to inform and advise specifically on the advantages and disadvantages of each property regime.
