Prenuptial Agreement – Derby Solicitors

 


What is a Prenuptial Agreement?

This is for couples who are about to marry or enter a civil partnership.

The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary widely, but commonly includes provisions for division of property and spousal support in the event of divorce or breakup of marriage.The Courts are not obliged under UK law to keep to the agreement but unless there have been significant changes it is likely to be upheld.

We will obtain the information from you and draft a binding agreement for your signature.

To be valid;

1.each party has to have independent legal advice
2. each party must be entering the agreement voluntarily
3. the agreement must be signed at least 21 days prior to any wedding or civil partnership ceremony

Our Fixed Fee

Our fees: £500.00
VAT on our fees: not applicable

The fee assumes you have agreed what you would like to happen if your relationship ends.

We will:

2.Advise you about the issues to consider
3.Draft the agreement

We make an allowance (in addition to the drafting) of 1.5 hours for discussions and advice. This is normally sufficient except in cases where there are lengthy discussions about what should be in the agreement or disagreements. If such discussions become necessary we will provide a detailed quote for this work.
