Prenuptial agreements (also called ante-nuptial agreements) are becoming increasingly popular in Scotland, particularly for people who have built up assets prior to the marriage, or have been married previously.
Many people wish their assets to be protected for their children from any previous marriage.
What are the benefits of a prenuptial agreement?
The main advantages of entering into a prenuptial agreement are peace of mind and clarity as to what would happen in the worst-case scenario of divorce. For an individual who has considerable assets it is sensible to at least consider a prenuptial agreement.
What goes into a prenuptial agreement?
The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary widely but in the main deals with provisions for the division of property after the breakdown of marriage or civil partnership.
