If you’re getting married and want to protect your assets, we can help.
Just as you wouldn’t buy a house without insuring it, so you shouldn’t get married without protecting what’s yours. It may not be very romantic, but it makes sense.
What is a prenuptial agreement?
A prenuptial agreement (or ‘pre-nup’) is a contract that offers legal protection for assets you currently have and any future assets, such as inheritances, businesses or property.
A pre-nup will list your important assets at the time of your marriage, and specify which ones you want to be protected should your marriage end in divorce. It can also list any future asset you may have during the marriage, which you wish to protect.
It is recommended that you sign a pre-nup no less than 28 days before the date of your wedding.
Sometimes, pre-nups can also cover children, but in most cases the agreement is likely to be null and void, or at least reviewed, if you have children in future.
How we can help
We can help you draw up a prenuptial agreement to protect your assets – or, if you’re being asked to sign one, explain exactly what claims you’re giving up.
We can also advise you on whether a court is likely to uphold the agreement.
A post-nuptial agreement is basically the same as a pre-nup, but is signed after you get married rather than before.
Post-nups are sometimes used by married couples who are reconciling after a separation, or people who wish to protect an inheritance they are due to receive during their marriage.
However, since agreeing to a post-nup means giving up rights you’ve gained through marriage, you should think very carefully and seek legal advice before you sign.
