Pre-nuptial or pre-marital, or pre-civil partnership agreements have become increasingly popular in recent years.
The aim of a prenuptial agreement is to try and ensure before the marriage what would happen if the marriage broke down in the future. They can be very detailed or very simple depending on the circumstances of each case.
They are usually used by couples who have been married before or where one or both parties have assets that they wish to retain as their own following the marriage. Where the couple is younger, parents who may be giving large sums to purchase a property for the family home also often like the idea of a pre-nuptial agreement so as to preserve the gift for their child.
It is important to be aware that pre nuptial agreements are not automatically enforced by the court but since the case of Radmacher it is more likely that they will, particularly if they are completed well in advance of the marriage with the benefit of full financial disclosure, both parties take separate legal advice, and provided neither party is under duress. They can therefore be a useful tool in safeguarding wealth.
