Planning a wedding is an exciting time but it may also prompt you to start thinking about your long-term future so it’s natural to wonder what unexpected twists and turns life might bring.

That’s why, when planning a wedding or civil partnership, it’s a good idea to prepare for every eventuality whether happy or not. After all, none of us can accurately predict what may happen in the next 10 or 20 years. If parties enter into an Agreement having both exchanged financial dis-closure and having sought legal advice then the Agreement should be binding if at any time it needs to be enforced. However, it must be noted that it is not possible to exclude the Court’s abil-ity to make Orders for financial claims which are available to you once you marry or enter into a Civil Partnership. It is therefore important that you seek the help of a solicitor to ensure that any Agreement has the best possible prospects of influencing your future.

Asking for a prenup certainly doesn’t mean that you expect your marriage to fail or that you doubt your future spouse - and it shouldn’t detract from the romance and excitement of your special day. With the help of our friendly and experienced solicitors, putting an agreement in place is a straightforward and sensible way to protect your future and plan for the future, whatever it may bring. Once it’s in place, you can get on with planning and enjoying your wedding day and your life together as a happily married couple.

Prenuptial agreements, sometimes called premarital agreements, set out in writing what should happen to each person’s assets and finances if the marriage breaks down. It gives you both the opportunity to agree in advance what is fair - rather than one of you losing a large chunk of your assets in the event of a divorce, especially if one party is bringing a lot into the marriage, say from a previous marriage or a family inheritance. At Burn & Co Solicitors we’ve created agreements for many couples and our expertise provides the peace of mind that everything has been done correctly and that all the relevant issues have been considered and discussed. With a proper agreement in place, your wishes are more likely to be accepted by the courts in the event of a divorce - which could save you thousands or even millions of pounds in the future.

It is important to draft the agreement well in advance of your wedding day. This gives plenty of time to get the agreement right so that it works for both of you and it will be looked on more fa-vourably by the courts than an agreement that has been put together at the last minute.

With Burn & Co Solicitors, creating a premarital agreement is straightforward and hassle-free. Our friendly solicitors will explain the procedure clearly and answer any questions you may have. We offer free, initial over-the-phone advice, so you can find out about the process, timescales and costs with no obligations. So for expert, confidential and friendly advice, contact us today.
