Prenuptial agreements

If you have valuable assets, a substantial income or are a business owner or entrepreneur, it is prudent to consider a prenuptial agreement. The same is true if you have inherited wealth, are set to benefit from a trust, or you are marrying later in life.

 

A prenuptial agreement could form part of your broader financial planning.

 

The main benefit of a prenuptial agreement of course, is to protect you and your spouse from expensive court proceedings in the future.

 

Although they are not automatically enforceable in the UK, the Supreme Court has given recognition to prenuptials agreements and the Law Commission has recommended new legislation. In many cases now they influence the outcome of divorce settlements and can offer a good deal of protection.
