Abstract

This is a very profound and substantial contribution that is leading for Belgian law, in the area of separation of property and corrective clauses. First, I make a comparative analysis on the basis of which I argue that a counsel who advises a strict contract of separation of property without warning the couple for the harsh consequences thereof, does not behave professionally ethically. Furthermore, I give a clear definition and criteria for determining the marital property regime as being community or separation. The key is in the automatic and immediate community status of income from labor. I also explain how common or undivided masses may have three different qualifications: the ordinary undivided mass on the one hand and the community property in a community regime on the other hand. In between we find the internal community in systems of separation of property.

Furthermore I analyse all ins and outs of both the internal community property added to a separation system and the participation clauses.

The text also offers up to 67 possible clauses for marital contract.
