Pre-nuptial and pre-civil partnership agreements are contracts entered into by yourself and your partner prior to getting married. It is intended to outline ownership and how assets should be distributed in the event of the marriage failing and end in divorce. The benefit of entering into a prenuptial agreement is that if the marriage breaks down, on divorce, there is less acrimony and the legal formalities can be tied up quickly, without the need of costly litigation.
The courts will give appropriate weight to such agreements. Full weight will only be placed upon the agreement if the parties entered into the agreement of their own free will, without undue influence or pressure, disclosed full details of their income and assets and were fully informed of the implications of entering into the agreement.
