Pre-nuptial, Post-nuptial and Separation Agreements
Following the Supreme Court decision in 2010 in the case of Radmacher and Granatino agreements entered into following full and frank disclosure and with both parties having the benefit of legal advice are much more likely to be upheld than they might have been previously, even if they give rise to an outcome which might not have been that which a court would impose in the absence of such an agreement. The consequence is that more and more people prefer the protection potentially offered by a pre-nuptial agreement prior to marriage. This is especially the case where one of the couple has or is likely to benefit from family wealth. We can draft such agreements or advise on the implications if you are being asked to enter into an agreement either pre or post marriage.
