You can enter into a prenuptial agreement in Colombia to protect assets which were acquired in the past, and which will be acquired in the future. Prenuptial agreements can be applied to both civil unions and regular marriages. Even if your assets are not in Colombia, they could be in serious jeopardy in the event of a divorce or liquidation of a Civil Union, so you should strongly consider a prenuptial agreement if foreign assets are a concern.
Please note that after only 2 years of living in the same house as your partner in Colombia, your relationship automatically qualifies as a Civil Union and your partner could be legally entitled to your assets, similar to a regular marriage. This also applies to homosexual and lesbian couples. We can assist you with the whole colombian prenuptial agreement process.
Protect your assets in Colombia with a prenupt agreement. A prenuptial may also protect you from alimony payments, although its rare that a judge will order this type of payment. In most cases alimony payments do not exist in Colombia. It is also recommended to liquidate assets in a relationship immediately after being married or entering into a civil union. This in essence makes the prenuptial blindado, or bullet proof. In Colombia you can liquidate assets but remain married. Liquidating assets means that each person states and registers an act of liquidation at the notary with their attoreny that they have received their portion of assets obtained in the relationship. If done immediately after being married or entering into a civil union, then this value would most likely be zero paid out or received by each party.
