Family Law – Pre-marital arrangements

Pre-marital Arrangements Solicitors

Pre-nuptial Agreements

Its the last thing on your mind when you are planning to get married and hopefully would never occur, however if you were to split up in future there are several issues that could cause severe anxiety and a bitter separation on top of the emotional bruising, financial disputes being a major one. Its therefore wise to consider the consequences and in some cases formulate a formal pre-nuptial agreement that states what would happen to your assets if the worse happens.

Is a Prenuptial Agreement for You?

Sometimes referred to as break-up insurance, prenuptial agreements can be particularly useful if:

You have already been through divorce and understand that in the event of your new relationship failing an agreement can reduce complications
Its your first time to marry and you want to keep any assets owned prior to the marriage separate
You wish to protect assets for your children
You wish to protect business or commercial assets
