Post Nuptial Agreements

These are agreements entered into after marriage or civil partnership.

Similar considerations will apply to the making of post-nuptial agreements as apply to pre-nuptial agreements. However, the significant difference is that since a Privy Council decision in 2008 Post-Nuptial agreements ARE legally binding on the parties.

Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements are a complex and changing area of the law and therefore if you are intending to enter into either agreement you should contact us to take advice on whether your proposals are fair and reasonable (in light of the circumstances at the time) to place you in the best possible position to later be able to rely on the contents of the agreement.
