Prenuptial agreements (often know as prenup agreements or pre marital agreements) are a fast changing and developing area of law and the courts are becoming more and more willing to recognise them when resolving a divorce settlement. The purpose of a prenuptial agreement is to set out the parties intentions as to how property and assets should be divided if their marriage ended therefore they can be particularly useful to people with significant personal wealth or for people marrying from the second time.
A prenuptial agreement for unmarried couples (i.e. a cohabitation agreements) provide a similar arrangement, and can prevent drawn out and expensive legal battles on the breakdown of a relationship of an unmarried couple.
