Children Issues

Pre & Post-nuptial Agreements

Getting married is an exciting time in your life. It’s inevitable that discussions of finances will arise at this time, and sometimes planning for the worst is a sensible financial decision. Pre-nuptial agreements (sometimes referred to as ‘prenup’ or ‘pre-marital agreement’) can be an effective way of protecting your assets should your relationship come to an end. However sensible, it can still be a sensitive topic to discuss with your partner, that’s why we offer support and education around the options regarding pre-nuptial agreements. Our aim is to help both you and your partner find the best possible solution to ensure you get off to a great start in your life together.

A post-nuptial agreement (also called a post-nup or a post-marital agreement) offers a similar solution as a pre-nuptial agreement albeit after a couple has already married. At Hillyer Mckeown we’re here to help you understand the ins and outs of a post-nuptial agreements and our experienced team of professionals will provide the tools and support you need to give you the financial security you deserve.
