A post-nuptial agreement can protect your family and finances if you get divorced or dissolve your civil partnership. A family law solicitor can help you create a legally valid agreement.
A post-nuptial agreement is a legal document which sets out how a couple’s assets should be divided if they get divorced. Couples can create a post-nuptial agreement any time after they have married or entered into a civil partnership.
Post-nuptial agreements protect you, and your family, if your marriage or civil partnership ends. They’re designed to help people split finances and property fairly and, if you have children, ensure their welfare is put first.
