NORWAYThe spouses may enter into binding agreements concerning maintenance and other matters before or after divorce or during divorce proceedings. A spouse may agree to renounce his or her future right to maintenance, as long as it is not with regard to a hypothetical future divorce. What has been dominating over time is the prenuptial agreement, popularly known as prenup. It offered a perfect way for settling. Postnup Before a couple gets married, there are always things to be considered. Bringing in people from different backgrounds to live together requires some sort of an agreement for peaceful coexistence. The BGB also provides for two optional matrimonial property regimes, one of which is a system of exclusion of any community of property (Gutertrennung) and the other is a system of general community of property (Gutergemeinschaft). Germany's Federal Court of Justice has ruled that notarized prenuptial agreements that seriously disadvantage one party in a marriage could be deemed invalid. Marital Residence: If the Parties plan to live together after the marriage, this section of the Agreement allows them to outline matters related to co-habitation, such as alterations of already existing leases or property deeds, payment of expenses related to maintenance of the marital residence, and responsibility for shared living expenses. There are many different ways for a couple to manage their finances together, whether they maintain separate bank accounts and each take on different bills or if they have a joint bank account that they both contribute to. Except as otherwise provided in this Prenuptial Agreement, Husband and Wife may dispose of his or her property in any way, and each party hereby waives and relinquishes any and all rights to share in the property or the estate of the other as a result of marriage, joint tenancy, cohabitation, or any other relationship.
