In Community of Property

Your assets and liabilities merge completely. This means you share everything 50/50, including debt.

You need permission from your spouse when applying for credit or taking out a contract.

Assets are usually frozen in the case of death, until the estate winds up which could take years.

Out of Community of Property Without Accrual

Your assets and liabilities remain your own. This means you don’t share anything.

You don’t need permission from your spouse when dealing with your own assets. This is often unfair to a non-working spouse.

For this, you need a marriage contract.

Out of Community of Property With Accrual

Your assets and liabilities remain your own.

With the accrual, you only share the growth of your assets with each other. This means you don’t share any debt. You also don’t need permission from your spouse when dealing with your own assets.

For this, you need a marriage contract.
