Prenuptial Agreements Advice in Shetland

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 Prenuptial or Postnuptial 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 Prenup 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.
