Agreeing your financial responsibilities before marriage.
Just like marriage, pre nuptial agreements are not to be entered into lightly. Both signatories should have specialist and independent advice. Pre nups are a bit like insurance but it cannot be guaranteed that a court upon divorce will apply the terms of the agreement. The case law is being extended on this issue regularly; Stonehewer Moss family law in Cheshire will give you sensible advice and assist in the preparation of the agreement, working with your partners` solicitor to reach a fair arrangement.
Eluned Roberts, our experienced family law solicitor has close working relationships with expert barristers in this technical area to ensure the agreement has the best chance of being applied by the court in the sad event that it must be tested. In essence the court will give weight to such an agreement at present, without enforcing it like a contract. Any such agreement should be kept under review as circumstances change. It is generally advisable to confirm the agreement by a post nuptial agreement after the marriage.
