Understanding the legal status of prenuptial agreements:
Prenuptial agreements are often used by couples who want to agree – before they marry or become civil partners – how they would divide their money, assets, and property, should they decide to separate or get divorced.
Over the last decade, there has been a surge in the number of Prenuptial agreements. Courts will generally take them into account as one of the circumstances of the divorce or marriage dissolution case and will give significant weight to them provided certain safeguards have been met. For example:
- The financial needs of the children are adequately taken care of.
- Both parties had taken legal advice on the implications of entering into the agreement before signing it.
- Whether they are treated as being legally enforceable.
- Establishing where you can divorce or dissolve your marriage or civil partnership.
