Many couples choose to sign a marriage contract at the very outset of their married life to avoid many problems in the future. This is an agreement between the parties to set forth key issues relevant to their common life. It is especially so with respect to property-related matters that might arise.
Such a legal arrangement is aimed at governing property relations and determines how the spouses must divide their finances and property if it ultimately comes to a divorce. We should note that, as a matter of the applicable laws of Ukraine, a marriage contract may not be made about personal relations between the spouses and family members.
Who are the parties to this agreement?
Either spouses or persons who wish to enter into an official marriage and filed relevant application may enter into such an agreement. Such an agreement is not available to couples who live in a civil marriage.
If minor persons decided to get married, they must follow the aforementioned legal rules as well; though, in view that they still have no right to sign, it is their parents who must sign the relevant agreement.
How long may a marriage contract be effective and how may it be changed?
If you execute such a contract, it is essential for you to know that, under the laws, the date of such contract and date from which it takes legal effect may be not the same. Moreover, its effective period may be changed, both for the entire document and for its certain clauses.
