These agreements are often referred to as ‘pre-nups’. They can record how you would intend to divide your assets upon any subsequent breakdown of the marriage or civil partnership.
Any dispute arising from a relationship breakdown can be enormously draining, costly and unpredictable. Although this may sound unromantic, forward planning will provide structure and certainty, particularly in relation to money, property and pensions.
Recent case-law has had a major effect on these agreements. We can advise you as to whether entering into a pre or post nuptial agreement would be in your best interests.
