Pre-nuptial & Post-nuptial Agreements
Pre-nuptial agreements are often entered into to make provision for wealth already invested in a party or to make provision for wealth that may be received in the future.
Post-nuptial agreements are usually entered into where parties wish to separate but for whatever reason it may be, do not wish to petition for divorce at the present time. They therefore act as a holding position until the parties are able to or wish to petition for divorce.
In determining what orders should be made as part of the financial aspects of a divorce the Court will have regard to a pre or post nuptial agreements as just one part of the aspect of the case. Providing a pre-nuptial agreement is freely entered into, fair and both parties have legal advice the provisions are often upheld.
