Prenuptial & postnuptial agreements uk

When peace of mind is imperative, it is essential that your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is put together correctly.

These are documented, clear agreements designed to give peace of mind to both parties. They are especially important if any of the following apply:

– You want to protect an inheritance (or future inheritance)

– There are shared assets that would be difficult to split equally, such as property

– You have children from another relationship and want to protect their inheritance rights or reserve them certain assets

– One or both parties own their own business

– One or both parties has outstanding debt (a ‘debt clause’ can prevent you being liable)

Every conversation you have with us is confidential and we have your best interests at heart every step of the way.

Are prenuptial agreements legally binding?

Prenuptial agreements are not legally enforceable in England and Wales. But a prenuptial agreement is more likely to be upheld if:


  • It is signed at least 28 days before the wedding day
  • Its contents are reasonable
  • Its contents are clearly not out of date (providing for future children, for example, and preferably a review after a period of time)
  • It is properly drafted by a solicitor, with both parties having received independent legal advice and provided full financial disclosure
