Prenuptial Agreements: FAQ

 

Are Pre-nups legally binding?

While a prenuptial agreement is not legally binding in England and Wales, if the pre-nup has been drafted by a solicitor and is highly specific and clear enough about the couples assets, then it will generally be taken into account during divorce proceedings. However, in certain circumstances, courts have overturned pre-nups and redistributed the assets as they have seen fit. Timing plays a great role in this; for example if a couple sign a prenuptial agreement a week before their marriage, then it may be overturned in the divorce due to the belief that the couple did not fully consider the terms. If a court rule the prenuptial agreement as being signed under pressure by either party, this may also lead to it being overturned. This may also happen if the prenuptial agreement sways in one party’s favour and leaves the other with nothing. Therefore, having an expert prenuptial agreement solicitor present to assist and advise you is crucial in how it will fare in court in the eventuality of a divorce.

 

What should a Prenuptial Agreement cover?

A prenuptial agreement should cover the following:

  • The exact division of assets e.g savings, shares, pension.
  • Living and property arrangements
  • Maintenance payments e.g bills and living expenses
  • (If children are involved) Child support maintenance payments
  • Arrangements regarding business related investments

 

Can we make changes to the Pre-nup after getting married?

If you wish to review and make changes to your pre-nuptial agreement, then these changes must be made in writing, and both parties must sign to make the changes official. It is beneficial to get back in touch with your solicitor if you wish to update your prenuptial agreement.
