A prenuptial, or premarital, agreement, is a contract between a couple getting married that sets out how assets should be divided in the event of divorce.
While it may seem unromantic, our family solicitors in Shrewsbury and Telford have worked with many couples who have found having a premarital agreement beneficial. Particularly when children, property or businesses are involved, a premarital agreement will ensure that each parties assets are protected.
Premarital agreements are not binding under English Law, but the courts are increasingly taking them into account on divorce – providing the terms are seen to be reasonable. Your solicitor can not only talk you through the elements that should be included in the agreement, but also help you to draft an appropriate agreement.
Postnuptial agreements can also be written after a couple is married to serve a similar purpose. These are particularly common when one of the couple’s circumstances change notably during a marriage, such as receiving an inheritance.

Great solicitors best I've ever had dealings with , they did all the work
My wife and I recently bought a house using Terry Jones as our solicitor. You hear horror stories about how difficult a house purchase can be, but we experienced no problems at all. Our solicitor Tracy dealt with all the problems before we were even aware of them and I could not believe how smoothly the entire process went. Very pleased and would definitely recommend.
I have been in contact twice previously with this solicitors and both times they were excellent couldn’t fault anything, both Ian and Gaynor were extremely professional and answered all my questions.
Professional, helpful on all aspects I needed.
Emma Wing. I would like to thank you and your colleagues for everything you did in order to resolve my Mother’s estate. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you have done far more than is normally expected or required of a solicitor; and that without your kindness, help, understanding and perseverance this matter would still be ongoing. You have my gratitude and admiration for all that you’ve done to help over the many years this has taken to resolve. I am truly grateful for everything that you’ve done to help me and offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you in return.
