What Does A Prenuptial Agreement Contain
People have many reasons for wanting a prenuptial or pre-partnership agreement, but some of the most common issues covered include:
• How a particular asset, such as the family home, should be dealt with in case of divorce
• In what circumstances one party would pay ongoing maintenance to the other
• If one party is very wealthy and would probably be called upon to support the other, what that support would mean in practice – a lump sum, a trust, provision of property, etc.
• An agreement not to share out a particular asset, for example, a property or business owned prior to the relationship
• If the parties have connections with overseas countries, which country’s courts will deal with their divorce and related financial matters
• Agreement as to how inherited or gifted wealth should be treated in the event of a divorce
The court has discretion to put in place different financial arrangements from those set out in the agreement if they are unfair. However, a well-drafted agreement is likely to be upheld by the court.
