Nuptial and Registration Agreements
In recent times the English courts have given greater significance to pre-nuptial and other marital agreements that are “freely entered into by each party with a full appreciation of its implications unless in the circumstances prevailing it would not be fair to hold the parties to their agreement.” So said the UK Supreme Court in a recent landmark case, meaning this was a major step toward such agreements being decisive, even though not yet strictly law.
There are many matters to consider in relation to these forms of agreements, but our senior family lawyers are able to advise upon, negotiate and draft all forms of marital agreement to address your concerns and your future needs.
The agreement can regulate the financial arrangements during the marriage or contemplate a possible future separation. Remember, nuptial (or pre-nuptial) agreements are not the preserve of the super wealthy, but have become increasingly important for mature couples, and those of a second marriage who wish to preserve provision for children from an earlier relationship.
