Solicitors for prenuptial agreements in the UK
Why have a prenuptial agreement?
Pre and postnuptial agreements are increasingly popular in this country as more and more couples are alarmed by the potential cost, both financial and emotional, of getting divorced.
Couples may choose to set out in a document what will happen in the event that their marriage or civil partnership breaks down.
The most common reasons for having a prenuptial agreement are:
- Protection of inherited or family wealth or where there is a disparity in wealth between a couple
- Second marriages: when one or both parties want to preserve some element of their estate for their children from a previous relationship
- Private companies where there are shareholders agreements in place
- Where there may be a debate as to which country divorce proceedings will be heard
