Postnuptial agreements in England and Wales
The run up to any wedding is exceptionally busy, with so many things to think about that you may not have had time to put a prenuptial agreement into place in sufficient time before the wedding or at all.
Alternatively, circumstances after marriage might change new information may come to light or you may make discoveries which could potentially jeopardise the future of your relationship and marriage or perhaps you discover a significant potential inheritance or other windfall..
In these circumstances, a postnuptial agreement will give you piece of mind.
Many couples do not realise that it is possible to enter into an agreement after they have married or entered into a civil partnership. Postnuptial or postmarital agreements are often used when parties wish to confirm and/or amend a premarital agreement to reflect a change in their circumstances and/or after a passage of time.
A postnuptial agreement is also an effective way to document intentions for earnings and assets during the marriage as well as protecting your assets in divorce.
