Pre-Nuptial Agreements


Planning a wedding is an exciting time, and also a time when you start thinking about your long-term future. You’re probably looking forward to a long and happy marriage but it’s also natural to wonder what unexpected twists and turns life might bring.

That’s why, when planning a wedding or civil partnership, it’s a good idea to prepare for every eventuality. After all, none of us can accurately predict where life may take us in 10 or 20 years’ time. With a ‘Pre-Nuptial Agreement’ in place, you and your partner can enter into marriage safe in the knowledge that you’ll both know where you stand if you do choose to end your marriage in the future.

Asking for a ‘Pre-Nup’ certainly doesn’t mean that you expect your marriage to fail and it doesn’t have to detract from the romance and excitement of your special day. With the help of our friendly and experienced Solicitors, putting an agreement in place is a straightforward and sensible way to protect your future. And, once it’s in place, you can get on with planning and enjoying your wedding day and your life together as a happily married couple.

‘Pre-Nuptial Agreements’, sometimes called ‘Premarital Agreements’, set out in writing what should happen to each person’s assets and finances if the marriage breaks down.
