When entering into a relationship, protection of your financial position is not always your first thought. Whilst unromantic it is sensible planning in the hope that you may never need to refer back to it. Whether you are intending to cohabit with somebody or marry, we can draw up an agreement reflecting your intentions that helps protect you.
The law relating to couples that cohabit without marrying is very different to the law that relates to marriage where there is no such thing as a “common law” husband or wife. We will therefore give you clear and practical advice on the things you can do to help protect you, your rights of ownership and occupation of your home and your rights and responsibilities as a parent.
If you plan to marry but are concerned about protecting your assets, particularly where you may have been married or in a relationship before and want to ensure you know where you stand should things not turn out as you plan. We can help you and your intended spouse draw up a simple and clear agreement setting out your respective rights in case it may be needed.
Our family team are highly experienced and can offer expert advice on all areas relating to pre-nuptial agreements.
