Marriage and civil union

The rights and obligations of the spouses resulting from a marriage or a civil union are the same. Both of them may be celebrated before a Notary of DUPRE BEDARD JANELLE, at the location of your choice while remaining in Quebec territory.

Before the ceremony, it is important to be informed on the familial patrimony and on the different available matrimonial regimes. However, contrary to marriage, the civil union is harder to be recognized outside of the province of Quebec. Furthermore, the civil union may be dissolved before a Notary instead of a Judge of the Superior Court.

We offer to assist you with the process of ascertaining your relationship in order to inform and guide you on the various distinctions ruling a marriage or civil union. It might also be important to prepare a marriage contract in order to outline your commitment.
