A prenuptial agreement (also known as a prenup) is a written document that is made before a couple get married. These act as a barrier to protect you. These agreements are usually entered into before a marriage takes place. Both parties agree to specific terms which must be complied with, these are presented in a written document. The agreement also includes details on what would happen if a divorce or breakdown in relationship was to take place, such as distribution of assets.
Although pre-nuptial agreements are not legally binding, if they are drafted fairly with full and frank disclosure from each party and in the absence of duress, the Court is likely to take the terms of the pre-nuptial agreement into account.
