At K J Smith Solicitors, we are fully qualified and highly skilled in preparing pre- and post-nuptial 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. Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements are useful tools which allow couples to agree from the outset (or shortly after marriage) how these difficult decisions will be made if their relationship breaks down.
Currently, pre- and post-nuptial agreements are not strictly legally binding. However, if they are properly drafted and executed, they can be very persuasive in the event of a dispute later on. In order to maximise the protective effect they can offer, parties need to ensure that their agreement meets very specific criteria. The law surrounding these documents can be complicated. This is where we are able to help, offering clear and pragmatic advice at the outset, which can be more cost effective and less stressful than dealing with it later, at the time of a separation or divorce.
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.
If you are recently married, entering a civil partnership or have recently got engaged, do get in touch with us to find out more about the advice we can offer couples.
We handle all enquiries with the utmost sensitivity and treat all cases with professionalism and care to help ensure the process is smooth so that you can get back to focussing on enjoying married life as soon as possible.
Finding the right lawyer for you can be a difficult job, especially when you cannot meet them in person to talk through your concerns.
At K J Smith Solicitors, we believe that the current social distancing measures should not impact on your ability to access fast, free and personalised legal advice in your time of need. Whilst initial telephone consultations can be very useful, they can lack the personal touch especially when you are talking about sensitive matters concerning your children or family finances. Therefore why not arrange a free video consultation with us via Zoom, WhatsApp, MeetMe or Facetime?
Not only will you have the benefit of meeting your lawyer face to face from the comfort of your home or office but both you and your lawyer will be able to “screen share” documents facilitating better advice in relation to key issues.
Our flexible video conferencing service is available Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 6pm, until 9pm on Thursdays and between 10am and 3pm on Saturdays. We look forward to seeing you (virtually) very soon.
We offer a free initial 45 minute consultation to give you the opportunity to meet us and find out more about pre- and post-nuptial agreements before deciding if you wish to proceed in instructing us to act on your behalf.
