A Cohabitation Agreement
A cohabitation agreement (sometimes termed “no-nup”) is a legally binding agreement between two people who live together (cohabit) without getting married or entering a civil partnership agreement. It sets out how your finances (capital and income, assets and liabilities) are to be dealt with if you separate, and is an important means of safeguarding your financial position in case your relationship breaks down.
A Prenuptial or Pre-civil Partnership Agreement
A prenuptial or pre-civil partnership agreement is an agreement reached between two people before they get married or enter a civil partnership, setting out how they would like their finances to be dealt with if the relationship breaks down. When the court in England & Wales makes a financial order on divorce or dissolution of civil partnership, it has a wide discretion as to the terms of the order. A prenuptial or pre-civil partnership agreement sets out the terms you would like the court to make.
A Postnuptial Agreement
A post-nuptial agreement can take place after a the marriage or civil partnership has taken place. Just like the pre-nuptial agreement, the post-nup is designed to record the agreement the couple has reached in regard to finances, assets, child arrangements etc should the relationship break down.

“Kidd Rapinet’s approach to helping me create a prenuptial agreement was both sensible and sensitive. I was dreading it, but they made the process much quicker and smoother than I expected.”
