A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into before marriage to determine what will happen to the assets and liabilities of the couple if the marriage fails.
One reason why couples are reluctant to enter into such an agreement is because no-one enters into a marriage expecting it to end in separation or divorce. It is for this reason that a Prenuptial Agreement can appear cynical or unromantic.
However, our experienced family solicitors at King Street Solicitors LLP do in certain circumstances advise clients that such an agreement is a very sensible and practical thing to consider in the lead up to a wedding. It is particularly important if clients have acquired assets through property or otherwise prior to the relationship with their intended spouse.
