Marry Civilian: How much does it cost to get married in civil and other important things the bride and groom need to know
Civil marriage is important from a legal and legal point of view, after all it is what validates the union before justice.
That is, there is no way to escape it. And for this very reason, civil marriage often ends up being the first and only option of the bride and groom, especially when the intention is to have an economic and intimate wedding.
What you may not know is that the value of a civil wedding can vary widely depending on the type of celebration, the regime of property and the location (costs change according to each state).
Marry civilian and the property regime
One of the first things the couple needs to decide is on the property regime. Without that decision made, there is no point in going to the registry office. Therefore, see below the types of property regimes accepted by Brazilian law.
Partial communion of goods
The regime of partial communion of goods is the most common one that exists. In this case, the couple agrees to share the assets they acquired after marriage, while the assets that were acquired previously remain in individual possession.
The partial communion of goods is also the least bureaucratic, since it does not require different documentation, as is the case with the following options.
Total communion of goods
The total or universal communion of goods, as it is also called, is one where all the couple’s goods, acquired before or after marriage, belong to both.
For this type of property regime, it is necessary to carry out a deed in a notary public attesting all the assets of each of the bride and groom before even filing the civil marriage request.
That is, it will require more time, fees and willingness from the couple.
Total separation of goods
The regime of total separation of assets, as its name suggests, is one in which assets (before and after marriage) remain in individual possession, that is, they are not shared in common.
This type of property regime also requires a deed to be presented at the registry office.
