Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial agreements are binding legal agreements between a couple, outlining how they will divide their property if they were to separate. These may be signed before or during the marriage. Typically, one party has significantly more assets than the other and wants to protect them. There are many arguments for and against such agreements, and very strict legal requirements must be observed. Consulting a lawyer is essential.

Wills and Probate

As you start your new path together, it’s important to sort out your Will. Be cautious of using a Will Kit, as lawyers do not recommend them. Will Kits are often problematic and can lead to legal complications after death. Lawyers charge for their advice and expertise, ensuring everything is properly handled.
