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.
