Prenuptial agreements & postnuptial agreements

A nuptial agreement, whether before or after marriage (or both) could form part of your broader financial planning.

 

The main benefit of prenuptial  agreements and postnuptial agreements, 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 both prenuptials and postnuptials 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.

We can also tap in to our global network of family lawyers, who work alongside us to create prenuptial agreements that comply with both domestic and foreign laws.
