When you are planning your future together, it can be difficult to consider what happens if it all goes wrong, but pre-nuptial agreements are designed to safeguard your future.
A pre-nuptial agreement is a document that outlines how a couple believe that assets and property should be split in the case of marital breakdown. While pre-nuptial agreements are not legally binding, Courts do take them into account when splitting assets. Many couples choose to draw up a pre-nuptial agreement if one partner has significantly more assets than the other, owns a business or to safeguard the interests of children from a former relationship.
If you are about to marry or enter a civil partnership and wish to draw up a pre-nuptial agreement our Family Law solicitors can guide you through the process. We will talk to you about your financial situation, your reasons for drawing up a pre-nuptial agreement, issues that are important to you and what you want to achieve. We will then draft a document that meets both your needs.
As with pre-nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements are designed to protect the assets of couples who decide to live together. Many people assume that if they cohabit, they become ‘common-law husband or wife’ and have the same protection as couples who marry, but this simply isn’t the case. There’s no such thing as a common-law husband or wife and there are no safeguards in place when it comes to the division of property or assets.
Our expert team of Family Lawsolicitors can help you to draw up a cohabitation agreement, outlining exactly who owns what and how. Cohabitation agreements can be as brief or as in-depth as you need them to be. For instance it could simply outline who owns what percentage of the property or whether payments towards the mortgage entitle a partner to a share of the property even if their name is not on the deeds. Alternatively, it could detail how every asset is to be divided and what will happen in terms of maintenance and care if you have children.
