What is a post-nuptial agreement?
You've probably heard of a , which is a contract made between two parties before they marry to outline how financial assets should be divided in the event of a divorce or separation. A post-nuptial agreement serves the same objective but is made after the marriage has taken place.
Why would I get a post-nuptial agreement?
People, circumstances and relationships are all prone to change over time and the understanding you had when you first married, or even the distribution of your wealth and assets, may have evolved over the years.
For example, one of you may now run a successful business, while the other has stayed at home to look after the children. Unless you have jointly acquired finances, this might leave one partner fearful of what the future holds, perhaps after the children have left home.
A postnuptial agreement can be a way of providing reassurance by redistributing assets more fairly, and by ensuring that neither of you has to worry about your financial future.
The best solicitors to fight your corner! I struggled with a nasty unmarried couple dispute alone for over a year before biting the bullet and paying for proper legal support. I had one previous experience with a cheaper less well known solicitor and I just felt completely let down and not a priority. But with S&G - from start to finish, I felt supported 100% and valued.
