An antenuptial contract (ANC) is one of the most important documents you will ever sign. Because this document governs what happens to all your assets and liabilities on death or divorce it is imperative that you give this some serious thought.
An Ante Nuptial Contract must be signed before the marriage ceremony is conducted and must be signed in the presence of a notary and two competent witnesses. The contract is then registered in the deeds office. Parties who wish to change their marital regime after having gotten married need to launch an application to the High Court.
