Pre-nuptial Agreements


Pre-nuptial agreements (pre-nups) can be utilised to set out clearly the intentions of a couple when embarking on a marriage, particularly with regard to financial matters.

Although drawing up a pre-nup may not seem the most romantic of ideas, it can be a way to seek to mitigate the cost and stress of future disputes should things go wrong.

At the present time, it cannot be guaranteed that a Court will take into account a pre-nup and much will depend on the circumstances of each case. In the recent case of Radmacher v Granantino 2010 UKSC 42, the Supreme Court held that the pre-nup should be taken into account.
