Pre-Nuptial Agreements

Pre-Nuptial agreements can provide a measure of certainty and the means of protecting pre-marriage assets, inheritance, and existing family commitments.

Unfortunately a significant number of marriages now end in divorce. It is therefore completely understandable that you might wish to agree what should happen in the event of a breakdown of your relationship.

A prenuptial agreement is a document in which a couple set out their rights in relation to any property, debts, income and other assets purchased together or acquired individually, or that they have bought into a relationship.

Once married all of these become matrimonial assets and, unless specifically protected, are treated as a single joint entity. The primary purpose of a 'pre-nup' will often be to limit the potential claims on the wealth of one of the parties to the marriage.

If you are contemplating marriage you should consider if you need one. If you are not sure, we can help and offer guidance.

When it comes to talking about pre-nups, we are good listeners, so let's talk.
