Prest for a proposal this valentines day Say it with a pre nup
Prest for a proposal this valentines day Say it with a pre nup . The social norm to move to the next level in a relationship and marry now takes place against the background of a society accepting of divorce far more than it was in the past while the law protects matrimonial assets giving special status perhaps now out of step with social norms. The first sentence of this blog is not a typing error, it is a clue.
Michael Brennan, a specialist family law solicitor at Cheshire firm Stonehewer Moss, had his experience over the the past few decades of his career confirmed last weekend while reading the Times at breakfast. Michael says, “I had been drafting a Valentines special newsletter as I have found that most divorce work starts at this time of year rather than the first Monday in January as the press generally reports. The Times article hits the nail on the head, advising readers, as I do clients,that anybody over 40 should consider entering a pre nup before they enter a marriage.Yes, it is unromantic but getting married is a big commitment and anyone caring about their intended should not be offended if a pre nup is requested. Such an agreement has to be fairly created and a specialist solicitor should offer a fixed fee perhaps with wills as well that outlive the ceremony as wills are usually revoked by the wedding at a time when you are taking a hazardous flight to your honeymoon. Flowers wither, chocolate is bad for you, a pre nup is until the divorce but the diamond engagement ring is forever. See section 3 Married Womens Property Act 1882 and Rose v Rose.”
The clue in the title is your alternative to a pre nup that a family with business assets should consider. For advice on a prenup at a special rate this year, contact Michael on 01606872200 e mail email@example.com ( including a request for our newsletter) or visit www.stonehewermoss.co.uk
