Pre-Nuptial & Post-Nuptial Agreements

Pre-nuptial and Post-nuptial agreements are becoming more and more popular as a wealth preservation tool, if you have personal pre-marriage wealth that you want to protect.

Pre and post nuptial agreements set out how you want to divide each of your assets in the case of a divorce.

They are particularly important if:

  • You have a family business to protect
  • You have pre-marriage assets
  • One of you has a substantial inheritance prospects
  • There is a sizeable difference in both of your salaries
  • You have been married before
  • You just want to keep things separate

Pre-nuptial agreements

Pre-nuptial agreements are made between two people before they get married, and set out what will happen to their wealth and assets if they were to separate or divorce. They are important tools especially in the event of second marriages as they protect the assets you owned before the marriage. Pre-nups can be used to ring fence assets for your children and ensure that they inherit them.

Post-nuptial agreements

Post-nuptial agreements are made during marriage or after separation if you did not make a pre-nup, and the same principles will apply. It sets out financial, child and property arrangements in case the marriage breaks down.
