Drafting agreements with cross-border effects can be difficult, as the English legal system (common law) speaks a very different legal language from that of the French civil system, for example. I therefore work closely with French lawyers to draft agreements so that they are maintained and relevant in England or France. I always reach this topic by saying 2 things: 1 – there are no perfect prenups, prenups should be selected according to the identified needs and the couple/family should act accordingly. 2 – what matters is more the consistent behavior of the couple / family throughout their life than what is in the prenup. The English court reserves the discretion not to respect the prenutial agreement if it is unfair to hold the parties to it at the time of divorce Marriage contracts are increasingly confirmed by the courts and it is important that you register to be bound by it. If you are asked to sign an agreement, you must understand the rights you are giving up by entering into them. We got married in October 2011 in Massachusetts. I was a mass resident, my husband lived in New Jersey. We maintained separate residences after our marriage until we moved to France in December 2011. We then bought a house in France together and are tax residents. We have nothing in the United States, including children from this or any other marriage. We are at the end of the 60s. I want to buy another house in France by myself, with my own money from the time before our wedding, to live there away from my husband.
My husband has no problem with this and is willing to sign an affadavit in which he states that he has no interest in my purchase. The purchase is delayed because the notary cannot know under which marriage regime we fall, whether in the United States or France. She contacted Cridon, but they didn`t respond. Is there another authority that can determine and advance the mafia regime? I believe there are misconceptions about what the marriage contract is. This document is in no way related to a divorce. This is just one element used by the court to decide in many different situations. This contract has only one purpose that defines in the couple WHO OWNS AND OWES WHAT AND WHY It is the “one bag” regime where marriage creates the co-ownership of everything that each spouse owns. To define a spouse`s assets and liabilities, take 50% of what`s in your pocket. This means that the couple chooses the rule in their couple. .
