Post-Nuptial Agreements Solicitors Manchester

As solicitors specialising in matrimonial finances we are often instructed by married couples to draft post-nuptial agreements so that in the event of separation and divorce they know how their financial assets will be divided ad what their financial obligations to each other are.
Post-nuptial agreements contain a provision that in the event of divorce the parties will agree to a financial consent order to incorporate the terms of the agreement.

Who needs a post-nuptial agreement?

    Couples who have signed a pre-nuptial agreement shortly before marriage and want to re-enforce the terms of the agreement.
    Couples who have separated and plan to or have reconciled and want to agree the division of their finances in the event that the reconciliation is not successful. 
    Change of circumstances e.g. one of the parties has received a substantial inheritance since the date of the marriage.

What provisions should be made in the agreement with regard to the following in the event of a divorce:

    The matrimonial home
    Gifts and inheritances
    Maintenance
    Pensions
    Family businesses
    Debts
    Child arrangements

Are post-nuptial agreements legally binding?

A post-nuptial agreement is not legally binding; however, it is more likely to be upheld because it is signed after the wedding.
