Expert Prenuptial Agreements Lawyers, Leeds

Although the media have often cast prenuptial agreements in a negative light, for many couples they can be exceptionally useful for many couples. Often prenuptial agreements play an important role in the process of divorce.

What is a prenuptial agreement?

A prenuptial agreement (often referred to in the media as a ‘prenup’) is a formal agreement entered into by couples before they get married or enter into a civil partnership. A prenuptial agreement is a formal legal document which records what is agreed between the couple in relation to how their financial assets are to be divided in divorce. The agreement may also include provisions in relation to business ownership, property and other matters.

Why would I need a prenuptial agreement?

When you marry or enter into a civil partnership, all assets accumulated become matrimonial assets - no matter whether one partner bought them or they were purchased together. Whilst this arrangement works well whilst you are married, when you divorce or separate these matrimonial assets must be divided. A prenuptial agreement allows you to protect the things that are most important to you, whether that be a business you have grown or an inherited family property.
