Banner Jones can advise you on if you need a Pre or Post Nuptial Agreement.
With high profile cases such as the Mills and McCartney raising the profile of acrimonious settlements, it is little surprise that couples thinking of marrying would now give consideration to some sort of pre-marital prenuptial agreement.
A pre or post nuptial agreements should be considered if:
- One or both of the parties to the relationship are more mature.
- Where this may be his second marriage or partnership.
- Where one party brings significant assets to a relationship or there is an imbalance in the financial provision to be made by both parties.
- Where provision needs to be made for children or dependants from a previous relationship.
- Where you wish to influence how assets may be divided between you should the marriage or civil partnership fail.
We advise that Pre-Nuptial Agreements are reviewed regularly and especially upon a change in circumstances, such as the inherited wealth from a parent.
