There are various possibilities to make advance arrangements regarding the division of prop-erty, including the so-called prenuptial agreements under Article 97 of the Marriage Act. Until the Family Law Amendment Act, 2009 was adopted, these prenuptial agreements provided an opportunity to make a fundamentally binding arrangement that sets forth in advance i.e. even before any concrete intention to seek a divorce, how the marital savings shall be divided be-tween the spouses if their marriage breaks down. This study analyses the amendment of Arti-cle 97 of the Marriage Act through the Family Law Amendment Act, 2009 and the new possi-bilities it creates with regard to a prenuptial agreement. Subsequently, the study compares the new legal situation with the old legal situation. The introduction describes the motivation for the Family Law Amendment Act, 2009, the amendments of laws it entailed in addition to Article 97 of the Marriage Act, and the differentiation of the various prenuptial agreements. After a short explanation of the division procedure pursuant to Articles 81 ff of the Marriage Act, the prenuptial agreements are discussed. A novelty in this respect are the possibilities to make a prenuptial agreement about all movable and immovable property used by the married couple during their marriage, about the marital home, and the newly introduced powers of the division court to depart from such a prenuptial agreement. Finally the agreements in connection with a divorce namely agreements pursuant to Article 97 Subsection 5 and Article 55a of the Marriage Act, agreements made during the property division proceedings and agreements made between the divorce and the property division proceedings are discussed.
