A Prenup is an agreement entered into by a couple prior to their marriage or civil partnership the prenup agreement outlines what will happen in the event that the marriage or civil partnership breaks down.
Many couples do not consider a prenuptial agreement because it appears or is regarded as unromantic or awkward to discuss, but these days where many marry more than once, and often later in life after acquiring property or becoming financially independent, a pre-nuptial agreement can be the most sensible agreement to have for both partners. Having taken this precaution, the parties are in our experience more likely to remain on good terms following a separation or divorce.
Prenups are currently not legally binding in England and Wales within divorce or dissolution proceedings but they are taken into account by the courts when considering a financial settlement. A pre-nuptial agreement can also make provision for the partner’s children.
