Prenuptial agreements - WHN Solicitors

The need for specialist advice:

Whether you are entering into a marriage or a civil partnership, you may wish to consider a prenuptial agreement.

Also known as a ‘pre-nup’, this type of agreement has become increasingly popular in recent years. A prenuptial agreement is a process and document outlining assets and financial plans before a marriage is initiated. This helps to alleviate any confliction if the marriage or civil partnership breaks down.

Our experienced prenuptial specialists provide practical legal advice and assistance to ensure your rights are protected.

Let our experience make yours that much easier:

At Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall, our sensitive, dedicated solicitors discuss the ins and outs of prenuptial agreements to make certain that this is the right course for you, and that you fully understand all the implications.

The most common reasons for a prenuptial agreement are:

  • One partner is considerably wealthier than the other and wants to protect their interests if the relationship breaks down
  • One partner has already been divorced and wants to protect their remaining interests
  • Preserve family inheritance
  • Protect children and dependents

A prenuptial agreement sets out what you and your partner have agreed on regarding your finances and children (if applicable) if the relationship comes to an end.

Prenuptial agreements are not yet legally binding in the UK, but the courts do take them into careful consideration at divorce proceedings or civil partnership dissolutions, so it can be a helpful solution
