When you get married you obtain the right to make certain financial claims over your husband or wife’s property, including savings, pensions and any other financial assets if that marriage ever breaks down.
A pre-nuptial agreement is a sensible way to set out at the start, what each person is bringing to the marriage and how you feel at that stage the assets should be divided if you do ever separate. Such an agreement can be particularly helpful if one of you has been married before, has children or is bringing a significantly greater contribution to finances.
It is important to be aware that pre-nuptial agreements are not automatically legally binding and they have to be carefully prepared taking time to ensure that each of you has all the information available to make an informed decision.
