If you are getting married, getting legal advice about the agreements you can choose to enter into is important
You may want to record the assets that each of you bring to the marriage and your preferred way of dividing current and future assets, should the marriage come to an end.
This is important as when a couple gets married, they legally acquire the right to make financial claims against each other if they were ever to separate.
The rules about a financial settlement are set down in legislation and previous court decisions but many people today wish make the decisions themselves instead of relying on the strict rules of the court. This can only be done by entering into a pre-nuptial agreement before you get married or a post-nuptial agreement after you get married.
If you are seeking advice because you plan to get married abroad, or wish to change your name, one of our experienced solicitors can provide you advice on your options.
