When you are planning your future together, it can be difficult to consider what happens if it all goes wrong, but pre-nuptial agreements are designed to safeguard your future.
A pre-nuptial agreement is a document that outlines how a couple believe that assets and property should be split in the case of marital breakdown and are becoming increasingly popular with people as they try to avoid the expense and the distress that inevitably follows the ending of the relationship in the future.
While pre-nuptial agreements are not yet legally binding, Courts do take them into account when splitting assets. Many couples choose to draw up a pre-nuptial agreement if one partner has significantly more assets than the other, owns a business or to safeguard the interests of children from a former relationship.
If you are about to marry or enter a civil partnership and wish to draw up a pre-nuptial agreement our Family Law solicitors can guide you through the process.
