Prenuptial Agreements

At K J Smith Solicitors we are fully qualified and highly skilled in preparing Prenuptial Agreements for couples who wish to protect their finances or assets should the worse happen.

The unfortunate reality is that more and more marriages and relationships come to an end, resulting in a number of difficult decisions regarding financial and property matters. Prenuptial Agreements can often help because they allow couples to agree from the outset how these difficult decisions will be made if their relationship breaks down.

It was a delight to be taken care of with full respect by someone who understood the delicacy of the situation.  I was nervous but with K J Smith staff I was made calm and all was resolved perfectly.

It is essential that couples understand that a prenuptial agreements isn't legally binding but they are becoming increasingly recognised by the courts as being of importance. In 2010 there was a major shift in the importance that the court attaches to these agreements following the landmark case of Radmacher v Granatino. In this case decisive weight was given by the judge to the Prenuptial Agreement.

A Prenuptial Agreement is more likely to be upheld if it is reasonable to both parties, was agreed after full disclosure of finances and both parties received legal advice beforehand.
