Getting married or entering into a civil partnership is a huge step in your life. But before taking the plunge, it’s worth thinking about whether you should protect your financial interests.
Making a pre-marital agreement (or pre-nuptial agreement) can help you define exactly who owns what going into the marriage or civil partnership and how finances will be arranged if you break up in the future. This can prevent disputes over money and property later on.
We understand that it’s not exactly pleasant to think about the possibility of breaking up with your partner just as you are about to embark upon your new life together. However, as people are getting married later in life, coming to new relationships already owning considerable assets and sometimes with obligations from previous marriages and children, safeguarding your interests is essential.
