Prenuptial Agreements

At Berry Redmond Gordon & Penney our family team offers a comprehensive package of family legal advice. Not only do we advise at the end of a relationship, but also at the beginning of a relationship. It is often a wise precaution to enter into a pre-nuptial agreement, especially for those who may be marrying for a second time and/or are bringing into the marriage substantial assets.

Similarly, we can prepare Co-habitee Agreements.

Both agreements set out what should happen if the relationship ends. We can assist in mitigating against any adverse effects and potential animosity which can arise should the marriage / relationship break down.

At present, pre nuptial agreements may not be upheld by a court should a marriage break down, especially if there has been a significant change of circumstances since the ceremony, which has not been provided for by the agreement. However, over the last few years the courts have begun to give greater consideration to these agreements, provided that both parties have received independent legal advice and certain other basic rules have been complied with.
