With the Royal Wedding fast approaching, it is inevitable that talk will turn to Pre / Post -Nuptial agreements.
These agreements set out what would happen if the engaged couple go on to marry and subsequently divorce. But, are they binding?
With the help of decent solicitors and the inclusion of certain key elements, they are certainly heading in the right direction. Provided various conditions are met, it is now unusual for courts to deviate from the contents of such an agreement. They are particularly popular in cases of second marriages. Spouses will have often gone through a difficult, emotionally traumatic divorce the first time round and want peace of mind over their assets going into the second. Some wish to ensure their assets will be reserved for their own children, rather than those of their new partner.
