Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Solicitors
There can be a lot to organize when it comes to getting married. The last thing you’ll want is to be tied up with paperwork with your big day on the horizon. However, more and more couples, especially those with significant assets or earnings, are considering prenuptial agreements a vital part of marriage preparation and are finding that, with the right help, the process of drawing up these documents can be painless.
What is a Prenup?
A prenuptial agreement, or ‘prenup’ as they are often called, is a contract a couple enters into before marriage or a civil union. It sets out both partners’ rights in regards to joint assets, such as property, income and debts, in the event of a marriage breakdown. It also covers anything that has been acquired individually, such as inheritance.
While some people may view these agreements as unromantic, for many they are considered good planning and a vital part of honest, upfront communication between loving couples. After all, it’s an unfortunate fact that marriages can and often do end, and these documents can protect partners from serious financial and emotional strain if the worst were to happen.

Post Marriage Agreements
If you’re already married, it’s good to know that it’s never too late to protect what’s yours. We also offer postnuptial agreements, which are contracts executed after a couple marries or enters into a civil partnership. Like prenuptial agreements, these documents outline how a couple’s assets would be divided if the marriage were to fail. So whether you’re planning to tie the knot or you’ve walked up the aisle in the past, we can help you to avoid a costly, acrimonious dispute if your relationship weren’t to last.
