“Are pre-nuptial agreements legally binding in this country?” P – Warwick

They are not binding on the court but are extremely persuasive as long as they are drafted correctly. Pre-nuptial agreements set out how the couple would deal with finances should the marriage break down and are a really good idea if one person is entering the marriage with pre-existing assets, for example a family business. A pre-nuptial agreement can also be useful for a second marriage where the couple want to preserve their assets for the children of their previous marriages.

This concludes the FAQ for this week. Visit next week for more answers to your questions. If there are any Family Law issues you’d like Band Hatton Button’s assistance with please get in touch.
