“Your Notary, a Reliable Source”
What is a civil union contract?
A civil union contract is a legal document that allows you to choose a matrimonial regime which is different from the legal and regulatory regime. The legal regime is the regime that applies by default to couples who do not have a civil union contract. Since July 1, 1970, the legal regime is the regime of conjugal community.
When should a civil union contract be done?
A civil union contract can be done before the ceremony, but it will not enter into force until the celebration of civil union. If you did not make a civil union contract at the celebration of your civil union, but you feel the need of such a document later, please note that the law allows you to switch matrimonial regime during your civil union.
Why choose a notary for your civil union contract?
In Quebec, civil union contracts are valid only when they are signed before a notary. Moreover, as a legal expert specializing in family law, the notary will give you clear explanations as to various matrimonial regimes and advise you properly with regard to your situation.
