The Process Explained

The form needs to be completed fully and accurately for us to prepare the correct documentation. This step should take approximately 15 minutes.

Once the forms have been completed and submitted online, you will be directed to the payment page. We presently accept payment by EFT or direct deposit. We do not accept cheque deposits.

Upon receipt of the forms form and payment is confirmed, we prepare the documentation and email it to you. It includes the following:

  • Special Power of Attorney
  • Antenuptial Contract

Once the documents are found to be in order, have them printed and signed. First, email the documents to us to check that everything is correct. Thereafter deliver the original documents to our offices, together with the required supporting documentation. Alternatively, have the documents sent via registered post, overnight mail, or counter-to-counter mail.

Upon receipt of the signed original documents, we will appear before a Notary Public on your behalf to execute the contract in terms of the Special Power of Attorney.

Following the execution, you will be furnished with a notarial certificate to confirm to the minister, marriage officer, and/or Home Affairs that you have entered into an Antenuptial Contract or Pre-Civil Union Contract.

Your contract will be lodged and registered in the Deeds Office and we will confirm registration via email.

The original registered contract will be delivered to you via registered post in due course. Upon receipt thereof from the Deeds Office usually takes approximately 2 to 3 months.
