Antenuptial Contract Costs in South Africa

When comparing Antenuptial Contract Costs with different legal service providers it is important to understand what services you are actually getting with the Antenuptial Contract.

Cheap or Free Antenuptial Contracts

Businesses that advertise cheap or free antenuptial contracts do not offer professional legal services and advice because they merely provide an antenuptial contract template.

Attorneys are held to a far higher standard than merely ticking the boxes on a form so be careful of what you buy online.

Without professional legal advice, the antenuptial contract may end up costing you a lot more in the long run than if you had paid for the antenuptial contract to be drafted properly by an attorney.

Antenuptial Contract Template

Completing an ANC template ie. a DIY Antenuptial Contract is seldom recommended. This is because there is really no one-size-fits-all ANC design that will protect you and your spouse for the duration of your marriage.

In addition to the fact that we are all unique, it is critically important that you understand all the implications of the terms used in the antenuptial contract template. This only comes with the assistance of a legal practitioner, who is there to assist you to draft an antenuptial contract to suit you and your spouse.

Registering an Antenuptial Contract

Unless an Antenuptial Contract is registered with the Deeds Office it is invalid. And it must be registered before the marriage to become valid.

In addition the cost of registering an antenuptial contract with the Deeds Office is a set price of R400 at this stage. This means that no antenuptial contract is actually free.
