Prenuptial Agreement Solicitors Paisley, Bearsden & Glasgow, Scotland
Many couples preparing to marry decide against a prenuptial agreement due to the lingering stereotype that it is unromantic or tempting fate in some way. Here at Wright & Crawford, we don’t think that could be further from the truth. A prenuptial agreement gives you and your partner the chance to start your life together free from any uncertainty. In the unfortunate event that you do later decide to separate, a prenuptial agreement can allow you to do so with a minimum of stress and ill feeling, helping you to preserve the best memories of your time together.
What does a prenuptial agreement involve?
In Scotland, a prenuptial agreement is a legally binding contract entered into before marriage which sets out how assets will be divided in the event of divorce or the death of one partner. This allows couples to decide upon their financial arrangements for themselves, rather than leaving this to the courts. Issues addressed may include:
- The division of joint assets;
- Entitlement to spousal support;
- Pension arrangements; and,
- The protection of each partner’s individual assets.
It is crucial that each partner receives independent legal advice before entering into a prenuptial agreement as, under Scots law, an agreement can be made invalid if this does not happen. Wright & Crawford’s specialist family lawyers will provide you with clear, reliable legal advice and negotiate a prenuptial agreement which works for you, all whilst keeping costs low. We offer appointments via FaceTime, Skype or email to ensure that you are kept informed every step of the way.
The solicitors at Wright & Crawford can:
- Negotiate prenuptial agreements on your behalf;
- Draft prenuptial agreements;
- Help you make changes to a prenuptial agreement; and,
- Help you decide what to do if you feel your agreement is unfair or unreasonable.
