Expert Family Law Advice and Assistance Scotland
When a couple decides to have their relationship formally recognised in law, either through marriage or a civil partnership, they usually have their eyes on their future. This can also mean being pragmatic about what a shared future will hold. Prenuptial agreements, also known as prenups, are a useful legal tool that allow couples to put arrangements in place to prevent problems and disputes arising in the future. By reaching an agreement about how certain matters will be resolved should the relationship come to an end, couples are also given certainty and peace of mind that their individual interests will be protected.
If the agreement is to be effective and honoured, certain matters have to be taken into account and formalities complied with. These include that both parties receive independent legal advice and the agreement be put in writing. At Davidson & Shirley, we meet these requirements and more, ensuring that:
- the agreement is fully comprehensive and reflects the circumstances, both present and future, of our client;
- negotiations are carried out fairly and based on full disclosure;
- the terms of the agreement are reasonable and reflect the law on financial provision and other matters; and
- the agreement is drafted to have clear, unambiguous terms.
