Prenuptial Agreement

If you are planning to get married and have assets, we can advise in respect of a Prenuptial 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 Prenuptial 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 Prenuptial Agreements and appears to strengthen the case for Pre-Nuptial Agreements being enforceable.

We can advise you on the benefits of having a Prenuptial Agreement.
