Pre Nuptial & Cohabitation Agreements
These days couples who are planning to live together or to marry can sign up to binding financial agreements which set out how property will be divided in the event of a relationship breakdown. Such an agreement can be the foundation of a good relationship because it allows a couple to concentrate on romance instead of worrying about the implications of separation.
It is even possible to enter into a binding agreement during a relationship, but it is best done as early as possible.
Our family law specialists have plenty of experience in helping people decide whether they need an agreement, what they should put in it and how to make sure they have their partner’s support for having an agreement.
