When you are planning your future together, it can be difficult to consider what happens if it all goes wrong, but pre-nuptial agreements are designed to safeguard your future.

A pre-nuptial agreement is a document that outlines how a couple believes that assets and property should be split in the case of marital breakdown. If properly drafted pre-nuptial agreements can be enforceable and courts do take them into account when splitting assets. Many couples choose to draw up a pre-nuptial agreement if one partner has or will inherit significantly more assets than the other, owns a business or to safeguard the financial interests of children.

If you are about to marry or enter a civil partnership and wish to draw up a pre-nuptial agreement our Family Law specialists can guide you through the process. We will talk to you about your financial situation, your reasons for drawing up an agreement and issues that are important to you. The key to a meaningful agreement is establishing what you want to achieve so we can draft a document that meets both your needs.
