It is no longer the case that Nuptial Agreements are for those with significant wealth or the rich and famous. 

We are seeing a rising number of clients wishing to enter into these agreements in circumstances where, for example:

  • there has been early inheritance received by one or both parties
  • there is the likelihood of significant inheritance in the future for one or both parties
  • there are pre-owned assets such as property
  • there are family assets

It remains the case in England and Wales that pre and postnuptial agreements are not automatically legally binding, but they are being increasingly upheld by the courts – if certain circumstances are met – when being asked to determine a couples finances on divorce/dissolution

Such agreements, by their nature, need to be handled sensitively and need to be focussed on your specific circumstances and objectives. If you have discussed the need for an agreement with your intended spouse, have received a draft document on which you require advice or feel your need some further advice on whether this is something you should be considering, please do not hesitate to contact us.  

We can often offer this service on an agreed fixed fee, depending on the circumstances of your case, and this can be discussed at the outset of your matter.


If you would like to speak to our team about your circumstances, please fill in your details and we will get back to you.
