PRE-NUPS – POSITIVE PREPARATION FOR THE FUTURE
Of course, family law is not just all about the break-up. We believe strong relationships can be reinforced by good forward planning – and what better place to start than at the beginning?
We take a professional and pragmatic approach to help new couples lay firm foundations for the future. Whether you are embarking on your first, second or subsequent marriage or choose not to marry at all, we’ll listen to your relationship hopes and dreams and support you in creating an effective pre-nuptial, post-nuptial or living-together agreement to suit you.
Pre-nups – and post-nups – are not only for the rich and famous. At all asset levels, they are useful tools that help you manage your spouse’s financial claims if your relationship unexpectedly fails further down the line – a properly executed agreement could circumvent the more usual legal principle that marital assets should be shared equally.
It is worth remembering that pre-nups must be agreed at least 28 days before your wedding, so don’t leave it to the last minute to explore this option; start considering well in advance whether a pre-nup might be right for you.
NOT PLANNING TO MARRY? NO PROBLEM…
If you are not planning to marry but would like to formalise your living-together arrangements, a cohabitation agreement may be your best way forward.
We can help you set out the terms of your relationship, including financial and property-ownership arrangements as well as an end-of-relationship protocol, in a formal document giving your partnership a clear structure that will avoid lengthy and expensive court proceedings.
Our team includes a recognised specialist expert in the field of pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements who will be happy to discuss whether such an arrangement may be suitable for you as well as any implications your existing agreements may carry.
