Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

A growing number of people are choosing to enter a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement before or after they marry. Whether you want to establish the rights to property or other assets, or whether you require support in the event of divorce or sudden death, Terrells LLP can help to minimise any uncertainty in these circumstances.

This seems to be the case for people who have been married before, who wish to ensure that any children they already have will be provided for and that their assets are protected.

Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Solicitors​

If you are engaged or already married, it can often feel like a breach of trust in your relationship to even consider what might happen if the marriage were to end.

However, in many circumstances it is a sensible decision to secure your financial assets – such as properties, businesses or inheritances – for the future. We have specialist family law solicitors, who are able to draft both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to give you peace of mind in any unexpected change.

In our experience, there are numerous reasons why you might wish to draft these kinds of agreements:

To prevent uncertainty over finances should your relationship come to an end
To protect cash or other assets that you have inherited through your family members
To protect assets for your children from previous relationships

Ensure you remain in control of your business
As a hedge against any liabilities your partner has, such as debts, loans or bankruptcy

Prenuptial Agreement FAQs

Prenuptial agreements have an unique status in English law. They are not recognised in legislation and their status has evolved through the outcomes of a number of landmark Court cases.

The law does not allow pre or postnuptial agreements to supersede the authority of the Courts. This does mean that these agreements could be overturned if the Court did not feel it was fair.

However, the Courts will take prenuptial agreements into consideration and the Court may not allow the parties to depart from this if they both went into it fully aware of each other’s financial circumstances and both had the benefit of independent legal advice.

Prenuptial agreements can cover various financial aspects, including intricacies surrounding properties, inheritance rights and business ownership.

Some couples may choose to opt for a postnuptial agreement in the case that they did not create a prenuptial agreement before their marriage or they wish to update their financial arrangements during the marriage.
