Pre-Marital Agreements

Planning a wedding or civil partnership is an exciting time and also a life event when you begin to think about your long-term future. It is hope you will have a long and happy marriage but it is also natural to wonder what the landscape might look like if you later separate or divorce.

That is why, when planning a wedding or civil partnership, it is sensible to prepare for the future and every eventuality. With a pre-marital agreement in place, you and your partner can enter into your marriage or civil partnership in the knowledge that you will both have a better sense of knowing where you stand if you do choose to end your marriage or civil partnership in the future.

Asking for a pre-marital agreement does not mean that you expect your relationship to fail and it does not have to detract from the romance and excitement of your special day.

Pre-marital agreements, sometimes called pre-nuptial agreements, set out in writing what happens to each person’s assets and finances if the relationship breaks down. It gives you both the opportunity to agree in advance what is fair with the intention of assisting to protect your respective financial interests in the event of a divorce or dissolution of civil partnership.

The proposed agreement must be prepared well in advance of your wedding or civil partnership, usually at least 21 days prior to the same. There must also be an opportunity to understand fully the financial position of each other and to make an entirely informed decision. It is essential that each of you have the opportunity of taking independent legal advice.
