Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements



Prenuptial Agreements which are also referred to as Premarital Agreements or Prenups, are set up prior to marriage or a civil partnership. Post-Nuptial Agreements which are also referred to as Postmarital Agreements or Postnups are set up after a marriage or civil partnership has taken place. Both types of agreements are documents in which a couple set out their rights in relation to any property, debts, income and other assets purchased together or acquired individually (eg, through inheritance), or that they have bought into a relationship.

Once married, these assets will normally legally become matrimonial assets unless specifically protected.

It is a common misconception that prenups and postnups are for the rich and famous. Setting up a Premarital or Postmarital Agreement is suitable for anyone who wishes to protect their assets such as property, personal belongings and savings. Also if you have children from a previous marriage and want to ensure that you reserve certain assets for them if your new marriage or civil partnership fails, then a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement may be a way to try to achieve that.

Is A Prenup Right For Me?

If you are thinking of setting up a Prenuptial Agreement, you may want to consider the following:
  • Do I want to protect my property should the relationship end?
  • Do I want to limit any potential claims?
  • Do I want to protect my assets?
  • If the relationship ends, will the dividing of assets be complicated and costly?
  • Do I want to protect my children from a previous marriage if the relationship ends?


Why Set Up A Prenuptial Agreement?

It is common misconception that prenups are for the rich and famous, however setting up a Premarital Agreement is suitable for anyone who wishes to protect their assets such as property, personal belongings and savings. Also if you have children from a previous marriage and want to ensure that you reserve certain assets for them if your new marriage fails, then a Prenuptial Agreement may be a way to try to achieve that.
