There are several different matrimonial regimes. Whether you are married under the regime of partnership of acquests, separation of property or community of property, it is entirely possible to change your matrimonial regime at any time, provided that both spouses agree.
How to change your matrimonial regime
You can change your matrimonial regime by making a notarized marriage contract. To do this, nothing could be simpler. Make an appointment with your notary for a consultation. Are you looking for a notary in Montreal to change your matrimonial regime? Contact Mtre Mona Salehi at 514-903-8560.
When will the new matrimonial regime take effect?
The new matrimonial regime takes effect at the time of signing the notarized marriage contract. The new matrimonial regime is not retroactive. It therefore enters into force when the notarized marriage contract indicating the new matrimonial regime is signed.
