Even when a couple is already married or in a civil partnership, post-marital agreements can be extremely useful for setting out what assets each party should receive if the relationship should come to an end.

Similarly to a pre-nuptial agreement, the ‘pre-marriage’ assets are set out, alongside any assets acquired during the marriage, and an agreement is reached as to what should happen to them.

Sometimes post-nuptial agreements can focus on specific assets, such as a family inheritance which one party wants to protect, or perhaps where one party is being brought into a family business, so as to set out the position for them and their spouse in the case of a divorce. In this way, the agreements can be used as part of the wider family’s wealth and estate planning too.

Whatever the family situation, preparing a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement can help to keep any separation as amicable and straightforward as is possible, helping to reduce the legal costs associated with a protracted dispute. We appreciate that every relationship is different, and so ensure that all agreements are tailored to the particular circumstances of every couple we advise.

Of Marie-Louise Hamilton: "I rate her very highly - she is very much an expert in the field."
