Many couples now consider entering into a pre-nuptial agreement before marriage – something which is particularly common in, but by no means limited to, second marriages.

Many families consider pre-nuptial agreements as an important factor in preserving family wealth in the event of a future marriage break down.

Pre-nuptial agreements can provide both parties with more certainty when entering into the commitment of marriage or civil partnership.  Our family team have acted for a number of clients in negotiating and preparing pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.  We offer sensitive and practical advice in preparing the required documentation.

Post-nuptial agreements can be considered when couples have insufficient time before marrying to enter into a pre-nuptial agreement or following a disagreement within the marriage they wish to have greater certainty regarding financial arrangements if there is to be a divorce.

It is important to obtain specialist legal advice as early as possible if you are considering a pre-nuptial agreement as there are time limits as to the execution of pre-nuptial agreements.  We can advise you on reasonable terms to maximise the enforceability of pre- or post-nuptial agreements.

How we've helped

We advised a client with considerable assets regarding the terms of a pre-nuptial agreement involving a family business and her inherited wealth.  Given the lack of time before she and her fiancé were to be married, she entered into both a pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreement.
