Pre-Nuptial Agreements are not at present legally binding in the UK, however, following the landmark decision in the case of Radmacher -v- Granatino in October 2010, the weight given to a properly constructed Pre-Nuptial Agreement by the Court has substantially increased. There may be a change in legislation in the coming years.

Whilst Pre-Nuptial Agreements are often perceived to be pessimistic and unromantic they can be of great assistance in reducing acrimony and more importantly expense on the breakdown of a marriage or civil partnership.

We regularly advise on Pre-Nuptial Agreements. If you are engaged to marry or enter into a Civil Partnership  then you should consider a Pre-Nuptial agreement where:

  • you have significant assets already in your own name
  • you are due to inherit significant assets,
  • you have an interest in a family business, for instance a farm, or the likelihood of gaining such an interest or simply
  • there is a substantial imbalance in the assets held between you and your partner

Perhaps your partner has suggested that they would like to have a Pre-Nuptial Agreement and you want to find out more?

Please contact one of our specialist family solicitors to discuss whether a Pre-Nuptial Agreement is right for you.
