Premarital Agreements

We love each other. We trust each other.

Before marriage, it is essential to take out an antenuptial contract.

If carefully considered, and devised, this vital document will offer you lifelong protection.

Why do we need an agreement?

Think of your antenuptial agreement as an insurance policy in the event of divorce, death or insolvency.

Labour Law

Unfair treatment at the office?

Constuctive dismissal is alive and well, this actually means you are being emotionally and psychologically “blackmailed” and forced to leave your job because it becomes intolerable.

This aspect of the law deals with labour relations affecting the basic, minimum requirements for employers and employees.

We are able to offer expertise in the following areas of the law:

  • User-friendly advice and consultation with a practical emphasis on all aspects of labour law and labour-related problems that arise in the workplace, such as those relating to management of disciplinary and performance issues at all levels, from executive to ordinary worker (both individually and collectively).
  • Privately conducted disciplinary hearings up to the highest executive level.
  • Expert representation at public and private labour arbitrations and in the Labour Court and Labour Appeal Court, drafting legal and court documents and expert management of litigation, advice on settlement offers and tactics, etc.
  • Practical training to suit a client’s needs on any of the above issues or on any aspect of labour law and labour-related problems in the workplace.

Marriage In Community of Property Agreements

If you do not sign an antenuptial contract before marriage, you are automatically married in community of property in terms of South African law.

When signing an antenuptial contract, it must be in front of an attorney (who is also a notary). The signed contract is lodged for registration in the Deeds Registries Office.

Marriage Out of Community of Property

Before signing an ‘out of community of property’ contract, a couple must exclude any assets that they don’t want forming part of the joint estate. A couple can be married ‘out of community of property’ with accrual system, or without accrual.

Cohabitation Agreements

A cohabitation agreement is a form of legal agreement between a couple who choose to live together - whether they are heterosexual or of the same sex.

Law for Women strongly advises couples to sign a cohabitation agreement in order to protect themselves from unnecessary cost and litigation if their relationship terminates. The agreement, much like a prenuptial agreement, allows the individuals to determine who will keep specific assets and what will happen to assets purchased jointly if they separate. This agreement is binding to both partners.

Living together

Whether you're a heterosexual couple or a same sex couple, a cohabitation contract clarifies financial commitments and sets out who pays what, and how responsibilities in running the home are shared.
