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.
Our team has extensive experience writing nuptial agreements and offering expert advice. We help both UK based and international couples, and frequently deal with complex or unusual arrangements. 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.
Our approach is to take time to discuss with you the assets you wish to protect, and create a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement that suits your individual circumstances. All your options will be considered and everything explained clearly.
