Pre-Nuptial Agreement


If you wish to regulate any agreement in relation to finances prior to marrying you can enter into a pre-nuptial agreement. Be advised that on divorce they are not legally binding but can be extremely persuasive as long as they are entered into correctly. Pre-nuptial agreements can be very useful where one party has for example significant assets or where the parties have been married before.

Second time marriages benefit greatly from ‘pre-nups’ as the document can provide assurance for the ‘first’ family and also address what is to happen to any assets pre dating this marriage.

Pre-nuptial agreements can for example ring fence inherited assets in the event of a marriage breakdown.

Please be advised that pre-nuptial agreements are not legally binding agreements but may be persuasive dependant upon the circumstances prevailing at the time they were entered in to and the facts in existence when the marriage breaks down. You may also wish to enter into post nuptial agreement once you have got married.

Both parties need to seek individual legal advice prior to entering into a pre-nuptial agreement and will also have to make full and frank disclosure of their financial circumstances.
