Prenuptial Agreements

In the event of a relationship breakdown, navigating the division of assets and resolving conflicts can be emotionally taxing and complex. At Williamsons, we approach these situations with the utmost empathy and strive to facilitate a resolution that is as amicable and as reasonable as possible.

Dealing with Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into by a couple before marriage or civil partnership, outlining the ownership of their respective assets in the event that the marriage or civil partnership fails.

Prenuptial agreements are particularly important when partners enter into a marriage or civil partnership with differing financial backgrounds or assets. These agreements are instrumental in scenarios where one party may have significant assets, has been previously married, or anticipates receiving an inheritance. A prenuptial agreement provides protection, ensuring that assets such as the family home are safeguarded within the context of the new relationship.

Prenuptial agreements have gained substantial recognition in the legal system. Courts may take these agreements into account during divorce or dissolution proceedings, provided they are entered into voluntarily by fully informed parties. However, there are specific circumstances, such as undue pressure or issues related to the age or maturity of the involved parties, which may affect the court’s consideration of a prenuptial agreement.

Our services include advising on your rights and what constitutes a fair and equitable prenuptial agreement. We meticulously draft and finalise the prenuptial agreement, ensuring that it reflects all agreed-upon terms.

The scope of a prenuptial agreement can vary widely but generally covers:

  • Contributions towards mortgage, or household expenses.
  • Management of joint bank accounts and liabilities.
  • Allocation of property, including the distribution of sale proceeds
  • Disposition of jointly acquired possessions, vehicles, and furniture.
  • Maintenance arrangements for partners and children.
  • Care and contact arrangements for children.

We guide you through information-gathering, draft the agreement, and advise on its execution and witnessing. Both partners will receive an original copy of the completed agreement.

Our pricing for drafting a prenuptial agreement ranges from £750 + VAT (£900.00) to £1500.00 + VAT (£1800.00), reflecting the bespoke nature of each agreement and the complexity of your individual circumstances.
