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.
