No one ever said marriage was easy, and concerns about financial matters are often at least a part of any problems which need to be overcome. Sometimes, in order to achieve clarity and provide some assurance, it can be a good idea to draw up a postnuptial agreement.
The discovery of an affair, concern about an expected inheritance being squandered, or pressure from family or associates to protect your business interests are all possible reasons why you might consider one.
Just like a prenuptial agreement, a postnup’ can be used to agree in advance what should happen to assets owned by you and your spouse or civil partner in the event you decide to separate.
We can advise you
Drawing up a postnuptial agreement will help to reduce any unnecessary heartache and financial disputes if your relationship does not work out.
Our specialist legal team has a wealth of experience in handling the sensitive discussions, negotiating points of difference and drafting these agreements..
One of the best ways to negotiate the terms of any type of prenup’ or postnup’ is by using collaborative law, where your lawyers are at your side to give you legal advice and help with recording the terms in a formal written agreement. They will discuss with you how you wish your joint portfolio of assets to be divided or ring-fenced in the event of separation and negotiate the agreement by your side.
Funding for legal advice or representation
Once we understand your circumstances, we will advise what funding might be available and discuss which payment options might work best for you.
