What is a marriage contract?

When should a marriage contract be done?

A marriage contract can be done before the wedding but it will not enter into force until the solemnization of marriage. If you didn’t make a marriage contract at the celebration of your marriage, but you feel the need of such a document later, please note that the law allows you to switch matrimonial regime during your marriage.

Why choosing a notary for your marriage contract?
