Pre-nuptial & Post-nuptial Agreements

Your need...

Starting a new relationship can be an exciting time and you probably don’t want to think about what might happen if things go wrong in the future. You do however want to be practical and plan for all eventualities, to reduce potential future uncertainties and distress should your relationship break down.

How we can help...

In recent years the Courts in England and Wales have increasingly attached importance to written agreements entered into by a couple either before they marry, or during their marriage. A verbal agreement is not accepted by the Court as a legally binding agreement. Similarly a written agreement entered into by a couple separating without legal advice, or a statement of intent by one of them is unlikely to be recognised by the Court as legally binding. This is because certain procedures need to be followed when entering into a pre- or post-nuptial agreement. If these procedures are not followed, then your partner may be able to claim that the agreement is invalid and make an application for the Judge to determine how your assets should be divided.

Our specialist family law team can give you expert legal advice about pre- and post- nuptial agreements, prepare bespoke agreements for you and help and guide you through the processes which must be observed. We know every relationship is different and we make sure the agreement will suit your own circumstances.
