Quick Enquiry


Protecting Your Assets

Recent precedents set by some high profile cases have made it clear that prenuptial agreement and post-nuptial agreement are now very much encouraged by the Courts, and judges will seek to implement their effect in most cases.

When a marriage breaks down a discretionary regime allows each case to be dealt with on its own merits. This can be potentially expensive and in many cases does not provide an easily predictable outcome.

Any person about to enter into a marriage is advised to enter into a prenuptial agreement prior to that marriage if they want the best certainty of outcome on a subsequent divorce.


Postnuptial Agreements

These agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements but are prepared after the marriage or civil partnership. It sets out a legal framework in terms of what will happen to your assets in the events of separation.


Practical Legal Advice

We can advise as to how best to affect this in a way which is fair, clear and dignified for both parties. In addition, it is now the case that an agreement made after the marriage (a post-nuptial agreement), provided it is properly entered into, can significantly influence a subsequent divorce settlement.
