Working collaboratively is an option available to separating couples to resolve issues arising from their separation, in particular relating to divorce, money/property, and children.
From 6 April 2022, the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 came into force,
making the biggest change in divorce law in England and Wales for over 50 years, ending
the “blame game” to allow couples to divorce amicably.
Getting married in Chichester, Alton or the surrounding areas this year? Will a pre-nuptual agreement be part of your wedding planning? If you think pre-nuptual agreements are just for the rich and famous, then think again. Whilst you’re planning your lives together, a pre-nup can be a beneficial legal document when settling your finances should the marriage break down in the future.
Historically, pre-nuptial agreements (also referred to as pre-marital agreements) have often been thought of as a contract for the rich and famous. We will all be familiar with celebrity divorces where the press have highlighted both the existence and non – existence of pre-nuptial agreements. As a result of this, prior to the last decade, the presence of a pre-nuptial agreement would only tend to enter the headlines if it was (a) a very public divorce of a rich and famous couple and (b) geographically tended arise from outside of the UK jurisdiction.
