What is a Prenuptial Agreement?
With the use of a prenuptial agreement, you and your prospective spouse can specify how your possessions will be divided in the event of a divorce. Prior to actually getting married, experts at Robinson Allfree can assist you in deciding how to split your assets and document this in a prenuptial agreement (Prenup).
Prenups can sound unromantic when handled poorly or could even create negativity at the thought of you contemplating splitting up before you have even said “I do”. This, unfortunately, is because the topic of Prenups is poorly communicated to your loved one. Prenups put simply, provide clarity, so if things do go wrong, you both know where you stand.
Prenups are not all the same, and each one needs to be tailored to each couple. Your Prenup can include anything you want it to, such as business assets, savings, inheritance, property and even what happens to your goldfish!
Prenups are not legally binding, but they are taken into consideration by Family Courts. However, in 2010 there was a landmark ruling in the case of Radmacher v Granatino where the Judge enforced the first Prenup. Since then, Prenups carry more weight in the Court’s decision-making process.
A Judge will, however, only consider enforcing a Prenup if they are satisfied that:
- the parties took individual legal advice before signing
- the agreement is reasonable
- the document addresses the needs of any children
