Marriage contracts

The marriage contract is the contract by which the spouses establish a matrimonial property regime other than the legal community of property, i.e. – in most cases – they adopt the separation of property regime. Marriage contracts may be stipulated at any time, even after the celebration of marriage, and may always be freely amended with the consent of those who entered into them. They must mandatorily be concluded in the form of a public deed, under penalty of nullity.

Main legislation of reference: Articles 162-166 of the Civil Code.
