Pre-nuptial Agreements and Post-nuptial agreements

If you are getting married or entering into a Civil Partnership and you have wealth to protect, then you should consider having a pre-nuptial Agreement. These agreements can also be drafted after the ceremony has taken place (post-nuptial Agreements).

Whilst the Courts retain ultimate discretion over financial matters, if the Agreements are properly drafted, both parties make full disclosure to each other as to their finances and both have solicitors, the Agreement is likely to be a significant factor to be taken into account by the Court in the event of a later divorce and can possibly act as a “knock-out blow”.

Preparing and negotiating these documents involves very special skills. Mundays lawyers have extensive experience of such agreements and will help you work together with your partner to reach agreed terms and to avoid unnecessary stress on your relationship in the months leading up to your wedding ceremony.

We work closely with our Private Wealth Department to ensure that any necessary Wills or Deeds of Trust match your needs.
