“Pre-Nuptial agreements are now commonplace and can be entered into before marriage or civil partnership.”

Pre Nuptial Agreements

The agreement will decide how financial matters are to be handled between parties if the relationship breaks down.

Pre-nuptial agreements are not necessarily legally binding, but they can influence how a court would view a financial situation in the case of a dispute following separation. A court may uphold such an agreement if it is deemed fair in all of the circumstances of the case. In recent times, there has been more of a willingness for the court to do so.

There are a number of steps to take to increase the likelihood of any agreement being upheld by the court:

  • Both parties should have taken legal advice
  • Both parties should given full and frank financial disclosure of their finances.
  • The agreement should be fair and reasonable.
  • The agreement should provide for future changes in circumstances.

"They fought very hard on my behalf and achieved the best settlement possible for me."
