Pre-nuptial Agreements

Pre-Nuptial Agreements, sometimes called Pre-Martial Agreements, are commonly used by the rich and famous.

However, people entering second marriages or people who want to protect their wealth for their children should their marriage fail, can often benefit from making a Pre-Nuptial Agreement.

Planning a wedding can be a lovely experience and you may feel very uncomfortable thinking about what might happen if your relationship does not work out. What we know is almost half of marriages end in divorce. It seems sensible to consider how you can protect your assets in the event of your marriage breaking down. Historically Pre-Nuptial Agreements were not binding and some would say they were not worth the paper they were written on. All of that changed in 2010 when a Supreme Court decided Pre-Nuptial Agreements could be binding, subject to them being fair, properly drawn up and both parties having had full financial disclosure and appropriate good legal advice.
