Pre-Nuptial Agreements

Family courts are increasingly upholding pre-nuptial (or pre-partnership) agreements when making decisions in divorce and civil partnership dissolution cases.

A pre-nuptial agreement sets out what you and your future spouse or civil partner agree should happen in relation to financial matters if the relationship breaks down and you separate.

Our experienced family lawyers will be happy to provide legal advice and guidance regarding pre-nuptial agreements. Speak to a member of our team today on 0800 652 5577 or get in touch via our enquiry form.

Pre-Nuptial Agreement Experts

In order to give a pre-nuptial agreement the best possible chance of being recognised by the courts, certain safeguards should be met. These include:

  • Both parties should receive independent legal advice prior to entering into the agreement or at least have the opportunity to do so
  • There should be a full and frank disclosure of each party's finances, including assets, liabilities, income and pension
  • The agreement should be completed a reasonable length of time before the wedding or civil partnership
  • The agreement must be realistic and reasonably fair

This is a complex and constantly evolving area of the law. If you are considering entering into a pre-nuptial agreement then early planning is crucial to ensure that the process is as smooth and stress-free as possible, leaving you free to concentrate on planning your wedding or civil partnership ceremony.
