Whether you are about to marry or have tied the knot and are living happily with your spouse, it can feel unromantic to think about what would happen if you split up. In some circumstances however it is sensible to ensure that certain financial assets – such as a business or inheritance – are secured for your future.
Prenuptial agreements (where you draw up an agreement before marrying) and postnuptial agreements (where you reach an agreement after marriage) give you this peace of mind. They can cover all of your assets or just key elements that you want to protect.
There are various reasons why you might want a pre or postnuptial agreement, including:
- To avoid uncertainty and arguments over finances if your relationship ends
- To protect money or assets that you have inherited and want to stay within your family
- To preserve assets for any children from a previous relationship
- To ensure you retain control of a business
- To protect yourself from being liable for any debts your partner has
