Pre & post nuptial agreements

Home » Services » Family law » Pre & post-nuptial agreements

If you are contemplating marriage, you may need to consider whether or not to enter into what is known as a Pre-Nuptial Agreement, which is an agreement made between two people before they get married.  This agreement will determine what should happen in the unfortunate event that the marriage breaks down. 

We recommend that these are considered, particularly if one partner has property or money which they have acquired prior to the marriage, or in circumstances where a third party, such as a parent, is providing money towards the purchase of an asset. 

Historically, pre-nuptial Agreements have not been upheld by the courts but their approach has changed considerably. Often, the courts now seek good reason not to uphold such an Agreement, where it has been properly executed, with the intention of being binding. 

The hope is also that with a clear understanding between the couple at the time of the marriage, it would avoid any dispute at a later date. 

If you are already married and seek to enter a Post Nuptial Agreement, these can also be prepared for you by a member of our Team. This may be important if you wish to protect monies received say by gift or inheritance or to protect a new business venture.

“At a time that couldn’t have been harder for our family, I was very lucky to find a solicitor who listened and helped me through a very demanding process.  It made things easier for me knowing I was being taken good care of and could rely on Wollen Michelmore to act on my behalf. I would and have highly recommended Wollen Michelmore Solicitors.” SB 2017
