Experienced Solicitors in handling Pre and Post Nupital Agreements

When considering entering marriage or a Civil Partnership, contemplating what may happen in the event of a separation is unlikely to be top of your agenda. Often overlooked, a Pre-nuptial or Post-nuptial Agreement can be a sensible way of estate planning to protect you, your future spouse, and your family in the event of unforeseen circumstances. It should be viewed similarly to that of creating a Will. Such agreements ensure that your wishes are protected and assets divided how in line with the terms of the agreement.

A Pre-nup ensures future certainty and security for both you and your partner. Such agreements can offer an inexpensive method of saving thousands of pounds in the unfortunate event of a separation or divorce. A Post-nuptial agreement has the same effect as a Pre-Nup, however it is entered into after marriage as opposed to before.

Such agreements are very flexible in terms of the extent of the assets which can be ring-fenced and protected. Typical assets may include properties, savings, investments, business interests or motor vehicles. The extent of assets is not limited and can be as extensive as the parties feel comfortable with.
