Just as marriage or civil partnership is essentially a contract which has consequences with respect to the parties’ assets and finances, so too does a Prenuptial Agreement. Although they are not too common in Scotland, they are becoming increasingly so.
Prenuptial Agreements or ‘Prenups’ as they are colloquially known have had to shake off the stigma that they are, dare we say it, ‘unromantic’ and show a lack of confidence in the proposed union of marriage or partnership.
Despite this misconception, they are becoming understood to be practical and perfectly sensible Agreements especially for high net worth individuals or complicated family and financial structures. The ‘modern family’ can throw up many issues with regard to entitlement and the sharing of finances and assets and Prenuptial Agreements help to smooth these over, offering peace of mind and allowing you to concentrate on the upcoming nuptials!
In order for a Prenuptial Agreement to be legally binding, it must be drafted by a Solicitor. In addition, it must be fair and reasonable and both parties will require to seek independent and separate legal advice prior to signing. This is important to ensure that no party appears to be disadvantaged or coerced into signing something that may disadvantage or negatively affect them.
