The execution of a marriage contract

It is not accepted in Russian Federation to discuss before marriage the conditions for terminating the union, the issues of paying alimony to the spouse, and the procedure for sharing property rights and obligations. At the same time, the country’s divorce rate is more than 60%. Therefore, before forming a union, it is advisable to take a sober look at property relations and conclude a marriage contract.

The conclusion of a marriage contract

A marriage contract is a document that provides for the division of personal and joint property of spouses, the procedure for generating general and personal income, the conditions for the payment of alimony and many other property issues both during the marriage and when it is terminated.

The contract may be concluded during the marriage or before its execution. But it takes effect only from the moment of marriage. During the divorce period, the document becomes invalid. With the exception of clauses provided for in case of termination of the union.

The law prohibits the inclusion in the document of regulation of personal non-property relations. Therefore, the document regulating the apartment cleaning procedure is immediately considered invalid. The law provides for a written notarial form for a document.

The contract execution procedure requires the active participation of a lawyer. Forms that are offered by a notary or credit organizations do not correspond much to the real state of affairs.

The credit institution provides for the protection of its own interests in the document. A notary establishes a fixed cost of services, so he has no interest in a complete and comprehensive analysis of the situation.

Therefore, to prepare a draft contract, it is advisable to connect a qualified lawyer.
