Frequently Asked Questions

A contract signed by a couple before their marriage in which they agree who should get what, when and if they divorce.
The agreement will be effective from the moment you sign it.
Generally you will want to make full and complete written disclosure of each othersí assets and liabilities well in advance of the wedding. You must make sure that the terms are not unreasonable, and would be considered fair, under the circumstances. We do not advise springing an agreement on the bride/groom on the eve of the rehearsal dinner.

All our payment transactions for Pre Nuptial Agreement UK are processed by Sage Pay. Sage Pay provides very high levels of internet and physical security to ensure sensitive credit/debit card information is never compromised.
At present, foreigners, rich men who are marrying poorer women, wealthy women marrying less wealthy men, and older couples who have been married before and want to make sure their children inherit their assets. But if they became legally enforceable they would probably be much more widely used.
If the weaker party was not pressured into signing; if both had independent legal advice and fully disclosed their assets to each other; and if the terms do not seem too unfair when the divorce takes place.
Lawyers advise their clients they have nothing to lose by signing them. Judges are increasingly willing to take account of them, they might be made legally binding in Britain in future, or the couple could move to another country where they are enforceable.
No. Just as each couple is different, there are no set contract provisions that are always used. The agreement can be as limited or as broadly stated as you want in order to protect each individualís rights and property.
Please be aware that our Pre-Nuptial Agreements are only valid for customers who currently live in England, Scotland or Wales.
