Prenuptial, Civil Partnership & Cohabitation Agreements

Today more and more people want to set out their legal and financial affairs on a formal basis before entering into marriage or living with someone. No one likes to imagine that their relationship will break up but a written agreement can ensure that you, your partner and your families have the certainty of knowing what each party is to receive and can avoid disputes in the future.

If you are planning to marry or enter a civil partnership, you may want to consider protecting assets or determining the financial terms upon which you will separate if your relationship breaks down by entering into a prenuptial or pre civil partnership agreement.  The agreement can also consider financial, tax and succession planning.

If you are already married or in a civil partnership you may want to consider entering into a post nuptial agreement to regulate the financial terms upon which you will separate if your relationship breaks down.

If you are planning to live with your partner, you may want to consider entering into a cohabitation agreement to regulate issues such as the ownership of property, payment of the mortgage and bills and what happens if you separate.

Increasingly collaborative law methods are employed when negotiating prenuptial, post nuptial, pre civil partnership and cohabitation agreements.
