If you are getting married, a professionally drafted Prenuptial Agreement can help you safeguard your assets for your future in event of a relationship break down and divorce.
A Prenuptial Agreement (also known as a Pre-Marriage Agreement) is a legal document which allows you and your partner to agree on a fair and appropriate financial arrangement.
We can assist and advise on a Prenuptial Agreement if any of the following factors apply to you:
- You are bringing wealth into a marriage.
- You have inherited wealth, or are due to inherit during the course of your marriage.
- You have children who are due to marry and want to protect your family’s wealth for the future.
- You are getting married and you own a business and want to protect your business assets.
- You have been married before and want to ensure your children’s inheritances are protected.
- You are the beneficiary, settlor or trustee of a trust, wanting to ensure that trust assets are protected.
In English Law, a Prenuptial Agreement is not strictly binding. However, English Courts will uphold it if the Agreement is freely entered by both parties with a full and fair appreciation of the implications.
A Prenuptial Agreement will not be upheld if it leaves a person (or any children) in a position of financial need.
