Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements

Recent decisions in the House of Lords and the Supreme court have increased the importance of Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements and with the courts now frequently splitting assets 50/50 on divorce, more people are considering entering into a pre-nuptial or pre-partnership agreement (in the case of Civil Partnerships).

These agreements are entered into prior to a marriage or civil partnership and are designed to record how a couple wish to resolve financial issues arising in the event of separation. It may be something to consider if you are worried about the uncertainty, costs, and bad feeling which can often accompany the breakdown of a relationship.

These agreements are often entered into on second marriages, or where there is significant inherited wealth.

Post nuptial or post-partnership agreements are similar to pre nuptial or pre-partnership agreements but are entered into after a marriage or civil partnership.

The case law and implications of entering into this type of agreement are complex and we are able to give clients sensible and practical advice in this area.

We may be able to offer a fixed fee for this type of work.
