Pre & Post Nuptial Agreements Lawyers

When you are excitedly about to tie the knot – or living happily with your spouse – it can feel like tempting fate to think about what would happen if you split up. But making sure financial assets are protected for your future is wise. That’s where prenuptial (prenup) and postnuptial (postnup) agreements come in.

You need a robust agreement – not just one that says what you expect to happen, but one that will stand the test of time. Let us step in to protect your wealth in a way that suits you.

Peace of mind wealth protection

  • We help you gain assurance from having a prenuptial agreement drawn up before your marriage or a postnuptial agreement can be reached after you have already got married.
  • Civil partnership couples also benefit from making a pre or postnuptial agreement.
  • Our expertise lies in helping you secure your future by avoiding uncertainty and argument over finances if your relationship ends.

Pre and postnuptial agreements: when they are needed

Often our clients are getting married for the second or third time and want to preserve assets for children they already have. Or perhaps you might have business interests or inherited wealth that is not for sharing if the relationship broke down. Whatever the reason, we can help with agreements that can cover all of your assets or just key elements you want to protect.

Working to protect your financial future

Pre and postnuptial agreements are not legally binding, that’s true. However, they are increasingly viewed as practical tools which carry considerable weight, as long as they are done correctly.

We work with you to prepare a clear, properly drafted document that will either influence the outcome of a court decision or be followed exactly on separation. Failure to have a pre or postnuptial agreement in place can leave you open to an unpredictable courtroom deciding your financial fate if things go wrong.
