Our Approach

At Blackstone, our meticulous approach means we are able to help you prepare either a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement which will meet your needs and protects the interests of both parties. Nobody likes to think of their relationship breaking down, but this is a reality for many couples and it is always sensible to safeguard what you have and take steps to avoid any unnecessary conflict further down the line.

Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is an agreement made prior to a marriage which explains how assets should be divided should the couple separate and their marriage end. The agreement is a way for you to protect your assets and is not only the preserve of the rich and famous; anyone who wants to safeguard what they have can enter into a prenuptial agreement.

Recent years have seen an increase in prenuptial agreements and the willingness of the courts to enforce them if they are freely entered into by both parties with a full appreciation of their implications.

Postnuptial Agreements

A postnuptial agreement is very similar to a prenuptial agreement, but is entered into after marriage when the couple are still living together. It serves as a way for a couple to make plans regarding their finances should their marriage break down. For people in a civil partnership, a post-partnership agreement is available.

Benefits

A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can have many benefits, allowing you to better plan for the future and providing you with the peace of mind that you won’t lose out financially in the event that your relationship does not last.

Among the benefits of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement are:

  • Reduce future conflicts
  • Protect your finances in the event of a divorce
  • Establish ground rules for deciding matters in the future
  • Clarify any special arrangements
  • Protection for any separate property
