Why have a Pre-Nuptial Agreement?
Although we at Wellers Law Group LLP hope that you will remain happily married throughout your life, unfortunately our Family lawyers know what statistics prove - that this may not be the case for many couples.
Protecting your assets
It is therefore essential if you are considering getting married and you have anything of importance which you would wish to protect should the relationship break down at a later stage, that you protect yourself with a Pre-nup. This is an agreement made between you and your future husband before the marriage and will detail assets such as a house you may have owned before the relationship or inherited, a car, jewellery - in fact anything of importance to you including a much loved pet which, in the event of your marriage failing at any stage, will be placed before the Court for consideration. The document can also outline the various assets that each party is bringing into the relationship.
If you have assets that you would like to protect then our Family Lawyers can discuss the viability of entering into a pre-nuptial agreement which will set out your intentions as to what will happen if you should break up. For further informationplease call any member of our team of Family Lawyers at Wellers Law Group LLP in Bromley on 0208 464 4242 we will be happy to see you for an interview and discuss your concerns. Aternatively please send your enquiry by email email@example.com
Protecting your Business assets
If you own or have a share of a business you may wish to protect this from any future possible claim on the business by your spouse-to-be. Both you and your partner would therefore need to have a pre-nuptial agreement in place to ensure that your future spouse waives all rights to your interest in the business in the case of your divorce or death. Alternatively you may wish to have an agreement in place for your future spouse to have the option to buy any shares you may own in a business in the event of your death.
Protection against creditors
If your spouse-to-be has incurred substantial debts before your marriage, it is important to have a pre-nuptial agreement if you wish to protect your assets from being seized by creditors in the event of your divorce or death.
If you wish to discuss any issues regarding pre-nuptial agreements or you and your partner wish to enter into a pre-nuptial agreement, please call 0208 464 4242 and ask to speak to a member of the Family Law team. Aternatively email your enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org. We offer a fixed fee, no obligation one hour interview so that we may provide you with initial advice and suggest the options for your next course of action.
