Prenuptial agreements

Planning a wedding is an exciting time – and also a time when you start thinking about your long-term future. You’re probably looking forward to a long and happy marriage but it’s also natural to wonder what unexpected twists and turns life might bring. That’s why, when planning a wedding or civil partnership, it’s a good idea to prepare for every eventuality.

After all, none of us can accurately predict where life may take us in 10 or 20 years’ time. With a prenuptial agreement in place, you and your partner can enter into marriage safe in the knowledge that you’ll both know where you stand if you do choose to end your marriage in the future. Asking for a prenup certainly doesn’t mean that you expect your marriage to fail – and it doesn’t have to detract from the romance and excitement of your special day. With the help of our friendly and experienced solicitors, putting an agreement in place is a straightforward and sensible way to protect your future. And once it’s in place, you can get on with planning and enjoying your wedding day and your life together as a happily married couple.

Prenuptial agreements, sometimes called premarital agreements, set out in writing what should happen to each person’s assets and finances if the marriage breaks down. It gives you both the opportunity to agree in advance what is fair – rather than one of you losing a large chunk of your assets in the event of a divorce. At Norton Peskett we’ve created agreements for many couples and our expertise provides the peace of mind that everything has been done correctly. With a proper agreement in place, your wishes are more likely to be accepted by the courts in the event of a divorce – which could save you thousands or even millions of pounds in the future. It is best to draft the agreement well in advance of your wedding day.

This gives plenty time to get the agreement right and it will be looked on more favorably by the courts than an agreement that has been put together at the last minute. Creating a premarital agreement is straightforward and hassle-free. Our friendly solicitors will explain the process clearly and answer any questions you may have. We offer free, initial over-the-phone advice, so you can find out about the process, timescales and costs with no obligations. So for expert, confidential and friendly advice, contact us today.
