Marriage registration and Prenuptial agreement


Our family law practice provides a tailored service to our Clients in this exciting period prior to your wedding.

It is a complex formality to get married in Vietnam as residing foreigners.  Though there is little to worry about in obtaining a marriage registration certificate, several procedural steps may confuse you and we highly recommend you seek out our help to properly secure your marriage.  Our lawyers shall guide and assist you with:

  • Preparing and translating all relevant documents for your marriage registration;
  • Conducting notarization at your country’s Embassy; and
  • Accompanying you and your spouse during the marriage registration.


A prenuptial agreement is a sensitive subject that many people do not consider prior to getting married.  Career and love are the two goals that you have pursued your whole life, and to achieve one thing at the sacrifice of the other may not be so wise.  It is in your best interests that you equitably share your property with your spouse during the good times as well as protect your family’s future in case things turn sour.

A prenuptial agreement, at its essence, doesn’t necessarily imply a hostile attitude towards your partner, or provide a lesser measurement of your love.  It is not selfish to plan for the future and you do not have to be afraid when discussing this concern with your spouse, and our lawyers.  It cannot be denied that there is an increasingly volatile business environment in the world and the fact that you and your spouse may not be from a same country.  Acknowledging these differences and anticipating that circumstances may change in the future shows that you strongly care about the welfare of your family.

At Family Lawyers, our legal team prepares prenuptial agreements that are uniquely tailored to protect the financial interests of you and your family.  We carefully focus on the details of your specific needs, your assets, bank accounts, properties, and investments, inside and outside of Vietnam.  We make sure that no stone is left unturned and that all parties to the agreement understand the meaning and implications of every provision. A sound prenuptial agreement will effectively eliminate all the risks of future conflict that may lead to litigation.  Should the matter go to court, you will have the foundation of this well-drafted and highly protective document.
