Getting married at the Montreal Palais de Justice is one way that you can celebrate your civil marriage. There are many differences between a civil marriage celebrated by a notary, and especially by Mtre Mona Salehi, Notary and Civil Marriage Officiant in Montreal, and a civil marriage celebrated by a court clerk at the Montreal Palais de Justice. It is important to carefully assess the options and benefits in order to make an informed choice.
A civil marriage with a notary officiant entitles you to legal explanations
During a consultation, the notary will explain to you the different elements of the law relating to civil marriage:
- the different matrimonial regimes,
- the concept of family patrimony,
- the legal implications of marriage,
- the possibility of writing a marriage contract,
The court clerk at the Palais de Justice is not a legal adviser. He does not have the right to give legal advice.
