A pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement (sometimes known as a pre-nup or post-nup) is a form of legal agreement that aims to set out who will get what in the event of a divorce or civil partnership dissolution. Whilst you may not want to consider that your relationship or marriage will end, over half of UK marriages end in divorce or separation.
Couples can protect their legal rights and lessen future costly disputes by putting in place appropriate legal documents, and our specialist family law team can provide expert advice and guidance on the right one for you.
