If you are planning to marry and have property
and/or assets in your sole name that you would wish to retain in the event of
your divorce, we can assist you to prepare a Prenuptial Agreement.
Upon divorce, the Court would regard your
property or assets as “joint matrimonial assets” and the Court has the power to
make orders transferring those assest to your spouse. If a Prenuptial Agreement
has been entered into prior to the marriage, the Court will take this into
account when determining settlement of financial matters.
Of course it is very unromantic to think like
this at this time, but it is sensible to do so. We can advise you about
the benefit of having a pre-nuptial agreement.
