ANContract

Should I have an ANC if I am getting married in a few weeks’ time?

A brief discussion of the ANC and the purpose of an ANC.

Most couples in preparing to tie the knot leave this question until very late in their wedding preparations. The writer on occasion in the past had to arrange for an ANC on the preceding Friday afternoon before the Saturday wedding at 10 am. That is cutting it fine.

During the excitement of a couple's impending wedding; it is easy to forget about the aspect of an ante-nuptial contract. It is however vitally important that you and your future spouse discuss the matrimonial property regime best suited to your financial needs from the date that you are married.

But what is the situation at home?

Divorce is not the end of the line; bot knowing your legal rights in advance and in the event of a possible divorce is vital.

In our last blog we looked at proprietary rights on divorce.

Today we look specifically at pension benefits at divorce.

One needs to be very careful about how retirement benefits are divided between spouses at the time of a divorce. Many people including their own attorneys get it wrong and leave non-member spouses, in particular, financially vulnerable as a result. And some of those getting it wrong are the so-called experts including divorce lawyers and retirement fund trustees and advisors.

It is a sad fact of life that many of our marriages end up in a divorce; and as the statistics imply that up to two-thirds of all marriages, depending on where you live and into what social bracket you fall, end in a divorce; it is advisable to know your rights.

A divorce order should cover the dissolution of the marriage, custody, guardianship and care of children, maintenance for the spouse (if applicable) and the division of/or be awarding of assets and liabilities acquired before, during and at the end of the marriage relationship.
