Pre nuptial agreements

We provide tax and trust advice in the context of matrimonial disputes and pre-nuptial agreements.

It is becoming increasingly common for couples to establish, prior to marriage,  a framework which deals with the division of their assets (and liabilities) in the event of a relationship breakdownThis is particularly attractive if you are entering a second marriage, and/or if there is inherited/family wealth, which you wish to protect for future generations.

Historically, prenuptial agreements were not considered worthwhile in this country.  However, a landmark case in the Supreme Court in 2010 has changed the perception of the English Court.  It is now the case that an agreement will be upheld if its terms are fair and it was freely entered into with both parties fully understanding its impact.

We can assist with tax and trust advice and in  identifying your wishes in the context of the these agreements.
