A pre-nuptial agreement (also called a ‘pre-nup’, pre-marital agreement, or prenuptial contract) is an arrangement entered into by a couple before they get married. This agreement is designed to regulate what should happen in relation to finances / assets if a marriage breaks down and ends in divorce.

A post-nuptial agreement (also called a ‘post-nup’ or a post-marital agreement) is designed to deal with the same aspects but can be entered into by the couple during their marriage.

These kinds of agreements are complex and their validity and enforceability is not uniform across different jurisdictions.

We can advise on the desirability of these agreements and the complexities surrounding them. We can also draft them to fit the circumstances as appropriate.
