Pre-nuptial agreements are legally binding - how will this effect you?

Pre-nuptial agreements are legally binding - how will this effect you?

6:57am 26th October 2010

The Supreme Court handed down judgment in a high profile case which will have a real impact for divorcing couples in York and North Yorkshire.


The Court has ruled that agreements entered into by couples before they marry (often know as pre-nuptial agreements or pre-nups)  which set out what they want to happen to their money if they separate will be binding provided both the couple have a clear understanding of what they are doing.

Although pre-nups are common in the USA and on mainland Europe, they not been recognized by the courts in the same way in England and Wales, until today.


Pre-nups are something which every engaged couple should consider.  Legal advice will be needed but this can be done in a non-confrontational way using the collaborative law process.

This process gives couples the chance face to face to create an agreement tailored to their needs in a dignified way.
