Prenuptial Agreements

Pre-nups & Co-habitationRelationship agreements (often referred to as pre-marriage/pre-nuptial agreements or cohabitation contracts) give you peace of mind.
We can help you reach an agreement that reflects your intentions.

If you are about to get married, enter into a civil partnership or start cohabiting, a relationship agreement can protect you both, whatever the future holds. From answering your questions to helping you reach agreement, we can support you through mediation to help you consider and agree how you may protect yourself from potential financial loss.

If you come to a marriage with your own assets, it is not uncommon for you to have amassed certain assets which you feel should perhaps remain yours, or be earmarked as your specific contribution to a married partnership. In those cases it usually makes common sense to take out a pre-marital agreement. If you are approaching a second marriage, you may have a particular need to enter into a pre-marital agreement.

People are wary of the potentially high legal costs of consulting solicitors to resolve such issues. By discussing these concerns in the presence of a neutral third party (the mediator), you may be more comfortable about raising what is often perceived as very sensitive issues and the mediator can help you both deal with the situation in a way that is fair to you both and reflects your intentions.
