Useful Information

In Greece, prenuptial agreements are regulated under the Civil Code (Astikos Kodikas). 

The Greek Civil Code provides the legal framework for family and marriage laws, including provisions for matrimonial property regimes. 

Unlike some jurisdictions where prenuptial agreements are commonly used to outline the division of property and financial matters in case of divorce, prenuptial agreements in Greece primarily focus on defining the property relations between spouses during their marriage.

Key points regarding prenuptial agreements in Greece under the Civil Code include:

  • Freedom to Choose a Matrimonial Property Regime: The default matrimonial property regime in Greece is the community of property (synkoinonikotita periousion). However, couples have the option to choose a different regime, such as the separation of property (chorismos periousion), through a prenuptial agreement.
  • Formal Requirements: For a prenuptial agreement to be valid in Greece, it must be made in writing and signed before a notary public. The notarized agreement then needs to be registered in the local Marriage Property Regime Registry (Mitroo Symvasiografiton Periousiakon Kathestoton Gamon) before the marriage takes place. This ensures the agreement's enforceability and public disclosure.
  • Scope of Prenuptial Agreements: Prenuptial agreements in Greece can cover various aspects of the couple's property relations, including how property acquired before and during the marriage will be managed and owned. However, they cannot stipulate conditions about personal relations between spouses or any future children.
  • Modifications and Enforcement: Couples can modify their prenuptial agreement after marriage, provided they follow the same formal process as the initial agreement—signing before a notary and registering the changes. In case of a dispute, Greek courts will enforce prenuptial agreements as long as they comply with legal formalities and do not violate public policy or mandatory provisions of Greek law.
