Pre-nuptial & Post-nuptial agreements

It is becoming more common for couples to enter into an agreement about what happens should their relationship break down.

Recent test cases have bolstered the legal status of pre-marital agreements in the UK. We can talk you through your options and help you decide whether an agreement is suitable for you.

Pre-marital agreements can be particularly useful if:

  • You are a couple marrying for the first time and wish to agree to keep the assets owned prior to the marriage as separate
  • You have already been through a divorce and want to avoid possible complications and legal costs in the future
  • You have business assets you wish to protect
  • You want to preserve assets for your children

We have experience of putting together agreements in all of these situations. Contact us and we will give you clear advice on how to protect your assets.

Costs

We do our best to ensure that you are fully aware of the cost of your case.

On matters that are agreed it is usual for us to agree a fixed amount so you are certain of the costs at the beginning of the case.

On matters that are not agreed we provide a cost based on the information we have at the beginning of the case this is then reviewed periodically. You may also agree to set a limit to the costs should you wish to do so. Work will stop as soon as the limit has been reached and you may set a new limit based on how your case is progressing.
