A civil union contract is a legal document that allows you to choose a matrimonial regime that is different from the legal regime.

When must the civil union contract be made?
The civil union contract can be made before the celebration of the civil union but it will not come into force until the date of the celebration of the civil union. If you did not enter into a civil union contract during the celebration of your civil union but today you feel the need for such a document, be aware that the law allows you to change regimes during your civil union.
Why make your civil union contract with a notary?
