Pre-Nuptial & Post-Nuptial Agreements

A Pre-nuptial agreement ('pre-nup') is an agreement which is entered into before marriage, which details how assets will be divided if the marriage breaks down.

A Post-nuptial agreement ('post-nup') is entered into after marriage, while a couple are still living together and allows a couple to plan financially should their marriage breakdown. Civil partners can have a post-partnership agreement.

The Law relating to Pre-Nuptial Agreements also applies to Post-Nuptial Agreements, the only difference is that a Post-Nuptial Agreement is entered into after marriage whereas a Pre-Nuptial Agreement is arranged before marriage.

Naturally people getting married believe that they will be married for life, however today this is often not the case. Marriage breakdown has increased significantly over the last few years due to changes in society and our work-life patterns. By signing a pre-nuptial agreement before marriage, both parties know exactly where they stand in relation to asset division, should the marriage dissolve in the future.
