Pre & Post-Nuptial Agreements
Pre and Post-Nuptial Agreements are agreements between married or soon-to-be married people that outlines exactly what will happen with their current finances and assets should the marriage or civil partnership ever breakdown. Taking steps in advance to secure your assets may seem extreme but the reality is that you are simply planning for all potential outcomes and being proactive to ease what may be a difficult time in the future.
If you have assets from a previous marriage, have accrued property or finances before marrying or are likely to inherit a large sum of money in the future, a pre or post-nuptial agreement can protect all of these assets.
What’s the difference between a Pre-nup and Post-nup?
Quite simply, a pre-nuptial agreement can only be created before you are legally married and a post-nuptial agreement can be created any time after you are married. If you are already married and you or your partner are regretting not arranging a pre-nuptial agreement, our team can help with a post-nup agreement.
