Sensitivity and certainty for the future
We recognise that discussing the potential breakdown of a relationship at its outset is likely to be uncomfortable and can put a strain on you and your partner. We therefore look to deal with the situation as sensitively as possible.
With vast experience in drafting pre-nuptial, pre-civil and co-habitation agreements we strive to quickly reach agreement on important factors including finance and care and provision for children. When negotiating the terms of the agreement, we can advise you on priorities: when to stand firm and when to compromise, so as to keep potential stress to a minimum.
Pre or post agreements – advice and negotiation on either
Meet Our Lawyers
Our family law team can conduct negotiations on your behalf and draft the agreement in a way that minimises the risk of the court, in the event of relationship breakdown, departing from the agreed terms. We can advise you also on the benefits of entering into a post-nuptial or post-civil partnership agreement, and can negotiate and draft this for you.
Examples of the points your agreement may cover:
- Family home: both the property and contents
- Personal assets of value such as cars, works of art, musical instruments
- Your respective pensions
- Income provision and whether one of you will pay the other maintenance
- Financial arrangements for any children, including their day to day living costs, school trips and, if applicable, school fees
- Practical arrangements for any children, such as who they live with and where they go to school
- Who pays the legal costs of the original agreement and of any subsequent negotiations or proceedings
