Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements (before the marriage) and postnuptial agreements (after the marriage) are increasingly popular choices for those looking for financial security and certainty in the event of relationship breakdown – especially those who have divorced before.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements have become much more significant in the Family Court as a result of recent landmark decisions in the legal system.
Provided that certain safeguards are met (including you and your partner entering into a prenup or postnup freely, ensuring that proper provision is made for any children, a number of other conditions, and full and frank disclosure), it is likely that the Court will give the agreement very significant weight in the event of any subsequent divorce.
The benefits of a prenup or postnup are considerable when viewed against the typical costs of contested financial proceedings in the Family Court.
On top of this, there is the reassuring fact that parties can enjoy their marriage without any fears or uncertainties about what would happen in the unfortunate event of divorce.
However, it is crucial that anyone considering a prenup or postnup seek the assistance of an experienced family solicitor: without advice it is possible for a prenup or postnup to be improperly drafted and thus subsequently unenforceable. Our friendly family lawyers are adept at advising on and drafting prenups and postnups, and are very experienced in highlighting relevant details that may otherwise have been missed.
