Our professional staff complement offers a broad range of services, including without limitation, specialist advice and expertise in:


One particular legal requirement overlooked by many, is the concluding of an Ante Nuptial Contract (“ANC”), the contract into which engaged couples must enter prior to marriage.

There is often the misconception that entering into an ANC is a precursor to divorce, which could be the furthest thing from the truth. An ANC, to the contrary, ensures that you protect your spouse against your creditors, should you default in respect of your debt and vice versa.

There are two options available to couples when considering which matrimonial system would best suit their marriage: either, out of community of property without the accrual system (no sharing in profit and loss), or alternatively, out of community of property with the accrual system (sharing in profit and loss).

Our firm offers detailed and personal consultations with couples to advise and discuss which of the above options will best suit them. Once an informed decision has been made, the ANC is drafted and signed then and there. We also offer the unique service of meeting with couples outside of our offices, anywhere within the Pretoria / Johannesburg area, should it not be possible or convenient to meet at our offices. We are also more than willing to assist couples after hours, or over weekends, should their busy week schedules not afford an opportunity to take time off during the week.
