Over the last six years, there has been a significant increase in the number of pre-nuptial agreements.
This is a complex area of law as the law is uncertain and potentially liable to change over the coming years.
Couples and their families are keen to limit the financial damage caused by divorce. These agreements, whilst still not binding in English law, can be persuasive evidence on a subsequent divorce.
These agreements can cover the following matters:
- UK assets
- Assets abroad
- Preserving family money and inherited property
- Future acquired assets
We also advise on post-nuptial agreements once the marriage has taken place so as to provide the clients with increased financial protection.
