In other countries outside of the UK, pre-nuptial agreements are binding and commonly used to protect couples planning to marry. However, since the well-publicised case of the German heiress Katrin Radmacher in 2009, in which her prenuptial agreement was recognised in the English courts, pre-nuptial agreements are now very likely to be given considerable weight by the courts.

There are many reasons why a pre-nup might be a good idea, including:

  • to predict the outcome of any divorce settlement before you marry
  • to save on costs and the acrimony that can arise in divorce proceedings
  • to prevent speculative claims following a short marriage
  • to protect those marrying in later life or for a second or subsequent time
  • to limit the claims of a second spouse thereby protecting the interests of children from previous marriages.

Our team can tailor any pre-nuptial agreement to suit your particular circumstances, ensuring that you are fully informed and your interests are duly protected.

What people say...

The team at Clarity Law represented me and I can honestly say that I do not know what I would have done without them. They helped me to stay focused on the bigger picture and I am grateful to them for helping me achieve the best possible outcome.

From the moment I met Ann I knew I was in safe hands, and the advice, support and guidance she gave me over the following 2 years was outstanding. Ann doesn’t waste your money by ‘holding your hand’, she really does get down to business and most certainly ‘knows her stuff’.

For me as a returning client to Clarity Family Law, the service provided by Ann and the team was first class.

PS

I instructed Clarity Family Law as a result of a personal recommendation after my initial solicitors provided me with a very poor service. I have been very happy and cannot fault their service in any way! Thank you so much.

I selected Clarity Family Law because it is a focused firm which is based locally. The firm did very really well in meeting my objectives and I would recommend them to everyone. Don’t change!

Ann was a rock in my life at a very stressful period. She was fully supportive of my circumstances and very professional at all times. She has an ability to talk straight with honesty and integrity.
