You can have your attorney draft an antenuptial contract tailored to your own individual needs.
Such a contract is recommended where:
- Both parties are business people in a exceptionally high income group and where they plan not to have children at all.
- A well-off widower and a wealthy widow conclude a so-called marriage for companionship.
- The interests of children may be involved in second and further marriages.
In these cases independent legal advice for each of the parties is advisable especially for the women, who on account of domestic obligations may be out of the labour market for a long period, to ensure that her interests are properly protected. She must choose carefully.
