Civil Partnership

If you wish to protect your position in future should your civil partnership come to an end, you may wish to consider a Pre-nuptial agreement (link to direct website to pre and post-nuptial agreements).

Pre and Post-Nuptial Agreements

Pre and Post-Nuptial Agreements are becoming increasingly common in the UK for couples hoping to avoid the financial complications which often arise when a marriage breaks down.

Whilst there has been a perception surrounding such Agreements that they are somewhat unromantic, the reality is that they can reduce the time, expense and acrimony commonly experienced with divorce settlements.

The UK is unique when compared to the approach across most of Europe and the world when dealing with Pre and Post-Nuptial Agreements. Across most of Europe and the world they are binding, however in the UK the Courts have the power to make alternative decisions if an agreement is unfair or does not meet someone’s needs. However, there has to be a good reason to do so and it is not something courts would consider doing lightly. What this means is that it is of crucial importance that any such agreement is drafted properly so as to avoid the possibility of the court either failing to uphold it or varying its terms.

Just as with any will, it is wise to review marital agreements from time to time, particularly when circumstances change, for example when children are born to ensure that the Agreement meets the wants and needs of each party.

Should you wish to know more about such Agreements, please do not hesitate to contact us for an appointment where you will be guided through the process.

Cohabitation/Living Together

Legal Protection for Couples Living Together

The law treats those couples who are living together, but unmarried differently to married couples – something often not realised until the relationship breaks down.

Resolving finances when such a relationship breaks down can be extremely complicated and an area where specific legal expertise is necessary. We have that expertise to advise and guide you through such a process.

In addition, should you wish to protect your legal interests without marrying your partner, there are a number of ways in which you can do so and we can advise and assist you in this process too.
