Pre-nuptial / Post-nuptial Agreements
Marriage is probably going to be the most important contractual decision of your life and yet people give very scant regard to any of its terms and conditions. It must be remembered that people generally enter into marriage on a wave of emotional buoyancy and any thought of a pre-nuptial agreement is the last thing on the agenda.
It has often been considered in the past that agreements made in contemplation of marriage were totally unenforceable in English law. The reason for this was that such an agreement (a pre-nup) was perceived to be an attempt to oust the jurisdiction of the courts and so be against public policy. However times are changing.
If you have assets (or future inheritance) to protect should your marriage break down in the future then consideration should be given to a pre-nup (made before marriage) or a post-nup (made after marriage).
We can offer advice in relation to the importance of a pre-nup or a post-nup and thereafter draft the necessary documents.
