Pre and post nuptial
If you are looking at protecting your assets or ensuring that, should you and your partner separate, you have financial security a Pre or Post Nuptial agreement may be a sensible option. You’ll get the best chance of your pre or post nuptial being accepted if you have both:
- Fully disclosed your financial assets
- Received legal advice
- In the case of pre-nuptials, signed the agreement at least 28 days before your wedding
- Given information that is honest, clear and freely given
A Court is more likely to uphold an agreement that provides clear financial arrangements for both parties and any children.

A positive statement
At present there is no requirement for the Court to uphold a pre or post nuptial, but it is moving towards accepting that it’s a sensible way for both partners to be clear on financial arrangements should you separate later on. You’ll find our solicitors stay right up-to-date.
Know where you stand
Pre-nuptials ensure that both partners are clear on where they stand and can protect any children in the event of the marriage breaking up.
Protect your assets
Many couples bring different assets to a marriage, particularly when marrying later in life or on remarriage. Some people can feel that a post-nuptial agreement indicates that they don’t trust their partner – but a willingness to enter a post-nuptial agreement can actually show how much you care.
Post-nuptials can be created to address separation, divorce or the death of either partner.
