Prenuptial agreements are a way for two people to agree before they get married or enter a civil partnership what will happen if they get divorced.
The bulk of the agreement will set out who will own houses, cars, businesses and other assets owned by either party if the marriage ends in divorce. Prenuptial agreements are increasing in popularity in Scotland. As many as 1 in 3 marriages end in divorce so many people find that a prenuptial gives them peace of mind before getting married.
Generally speaking, prenuptial agreements can be considered enforceable in Scotland, if they are drafted carefully. To discuss the preparation of an agreement please contact us on 0141 333 6750.
