Five reasons for a Prenuptial Agreement

  • Posted

Prenuptial Agreements are regarded as unromantic, but:-

  1. If every couple had one, there would be far fewer disputes about finances and all solicitors would be left twiddling their thumbs.
  2. If a Prenuptial Agreement is prepared with the assistance of an expert family solicitor, it stands a good chance of being upheld by the Court.
  3. It is vital for there to be a Prenuptial Agreement if one of the couple is wealthy and has significantly more assets than the other person.
  4. If it is a second marriage and if either party brings assets into the marriage, or if there are children from the first marriage, this will provide protection to them.
  5. If you don’t have a Prenuptial Agreement and your marriage breaks down, any assets owned in your sole or joint names form a part of the pot to be divided.
