Advice on Pre-Nuptial Agreements

Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements are an increasingly popular and worthwhile mechanism to protect individuals against future relationship breakdown. Providing that the agreement is entered into subject to proper legal safeguards then following recent decisions of the higher Courts in England and Wales it is increasingly likely that the provisions of the agreement will be applied and upheld in future proceedings associated with divorce/civil partnership breakdown.

Such agreements are particularly worthwhile if you have acquired assets prior to marriage/civil partnerships which you want to protect, there are potential future inheritances and/or if you are planning to marry or enter into a civil partnership for a second or subsequent occasion. You may have children from a previous relationship whom you want to ensure are not disadvantaged as a result of any financial claims made by your spouse/civil partner.

For more information then please contact us to discuss how such an agreement may be beneficial to your situation.
