When comparing Antenuptial Contract Costs with different legal service providers it is important to understand what services you are actually getting with the Antenuptial Contract.
Businesses that advertise cheap or free antenuptial contracts do not offer professional legal services and advice because they merely provide an antenuptial contract template.
Attorneys are held to a far higher standard than merely ticking the boxes on a form so be careful of what you buy online.
Without professional legal advice, the antenuptial contract may end up costing you a lot more in the long run than if you had paid for the antenuptial contract to be drafted properly by an attorney.
Completing an ANC template ie. a DIY Antenuptial Contract is seldom recommended. This is because there is really no one-size-fits-all ANC design that will protect you and your spouse for the duration of your marriage.
In addition to the fact that we are all unique, it is critically important that you understand all the implications of the terms used in the antenuptial contract template. This only comes with the assistance of a legal practitioner, who is there to assist you to draft an antenuptial contract to suit you and your spouse.
Unless an Antenuptial Contract is registered with the Deeds Office it is invalid. The Antenuptial Contract must be signed before the marriage
