Agree in advance

Protect yourselves from an acrimonious divorce

A post-nuptial agreement aims to outline how assets should be distributed following a separation. The idea is that by making the agreement when the relationship is healthy and amicable, any arrangements will be made fairly and cooperatively.

A post-nuptial agreement differs from a pre-nuptial in that it is made after the marriage has taken place. It is generally used if one party comes into a significant amount of money just before the wedding, with no time to get an arrangement in place; or where parties look to regulate their financial matters in the event of any future separation or divorce.

At Kee Solicitors, we are experienced in sensitively negotiating and drafting post-nuptial agreements and can guide you through the process, whether you are seeking to put the agreement in place, or have been surprised by your partner suggesting an agreement. Contact our specialist lawyers today.

Post-Nuptial Agreements

What is a Post-nuptial Agreement?

A pre-nuptial agreement is a contract that is formed before the date of marriage or civil partnership. The aim of creating the contract is to allow for easier resolution of a wide range of issues that may incur if the relationship breaks down. Such agreements are legally binding under Scots Law. The agreement will only be tampered with by the courts if it is established that the agreement was not made in circumstances that are considered reasonable, or that the agreement was made under unfair conditions.

Do I Really Need a Post-nup?

Both pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements can prove hugely important in the event of separation. Having an agreement in place will make sure certain assets are protected. Reasons for putting in place a pre- or post-nuptial agreement vary, but include the following:

  • A large difference in income between you and your partner.
  • One of you bringing more assets to the relationship, that were accrued before the date of union, whether that be from a previous relationship or from separate means.
  • One of you having invested more into the purchase of the property that you live or are planning to live in.

The agreement will establish how assets are to be divided upon separation, potentially saving you considerable legal fees in the event you separate without one.
