What is a prenuptial agreement?

Prenuptial Agreements are contracts that are entered into by parties before their marriage with the aim of either or both of the parties protecting certain assets held before the marriage in the event of any future divorce.

Are prenuptial agreements legally binding?

There is often unease as to whether such arrangements are worth entering in to. In general terms, if both parties were aware of what they agreed to do in the contract and in particular if each had obtained independent legal advice, then the courts would respect such wishes and would not intervene to distribute assets differently. If the contract is viewed as 'fair and reasonable' then it would be legally binding.

Therefore, any party who has sufficient assets to protect and who thinks they would benefit from a prenuptial agreement should obtain independent legal advice.

Why should I enter into a prenuptial agreement?

Many people think that entering into a prenuptial agreement is only for celebrities or the very wealthy. However, there are several reasons as to why prenuptial agreements can be useful for all couples. A prenuptial agreement provides both parties with peace of mind and clarity around what will happen should the relationship breakdown. It is also an excellent opportunity to plan for the future and take stock of your premarital assets. There are certain circumstances under which we would recommend considering a prenuptial agreement:

  • Where you are marrying for the first time and have assets you wish to protect
  • Where you have previously been married and found the process of settlement after divorce particularly challenging without such an agreement
  • Where you own or run a business that you wish to protect in the event of divorce or separation
  • You want to preserve family property or assets for your children

How do prenuptial agreements work?

If you and your partner decide that you would like to enter into a prenuptial agreement, you should both begin to think about what your goals are and what you wish to be included in the agreement. Family Law Inverness can help guide you through the process and advise both parties on the assets they may want to consider protecting under the agreement.

Just like every couple, every prenuptial agreement is different. Our solicitors will draft a bespoke agreement tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. We will take a detailed analysis of the assets of both parties to ensure that the agreement is thorough. Generally, prenuptial agreements outline how assets should be divided in the event of relationship breakdown. The agreement will usually cover property, business ownership, investments and income. The agreement should outline in detail how each of these will be distributed in the event of divorce or separation.

When considering a prenuptial agreement, it is essential to understand that the agreement must be reasonable for both parties, and both you and your partner must be willing to disclose the extent of your personal assets fully. You must also update and review your prenuptial agreement to take any changes in circumstance into account.
