If you are planning to get married and have assets, we can advise in respect of a Pre-Nuptial Agreement. Many people want to provide for a financial settlement in the unfortunate event that the marriage should break down.
Although the legal position in England and Wales remains that Pre-Nuptial Agreements are not enforceable, they do have persuasive value. This would be the case particularly where there has been full financial disclosure between the parties well before the marriage, when both parties have had legal advice, and where circumstances have not changed significantly since the marriage.
The recent case of Radmacher and Granatino was a high profile case involving Pre-Nuptial Agreements and appears to strengthen the case for Pre-Nuptial Agreements being enforceable.
We can advise you on the benefits of having a Pre-Nuptial Agreement.
If you would like to receive any more information or ask us a question about pre-nuptial agreements please contact our specialist Sarah Slack at our Beeston office on 0115 922 1591 or alternatively email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
