Prenuptial agreements to be made legally binding?

Published: 5th January 2011 - Category: Pre-Nuptial Agreements - Author: Lynne Bastow

Government legal advisers are drawing up plans to make Prenuptial Agreements legally binding according to the Daily Mail.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Depends whether you want to rely on one or not.

It is a good thing if it provides certainty and reduces litigation.

It is a bad thing if it causes financial hardship.


Legal Advice remains the same:

It is better to have a Prenuptial Agreement than not to have one provided it is completed properly:

  1. No undue pressure.
  2. Enough time to consider whether to sign.
  3. The opportunity to take legal advice.
  4. Full financial disclosure.
  5. No fraud or mistake.
  6. Takes account of a change in circumstances since it was signed.

A Prenuptial Agreement is one of the factors that a judge can take into account and if it is fair and completed properly is likely to be given legal weight.

Why get married without one?
