Pre-Nuptial Solicitors in Eastbourne

At Hart Reade, we provide specialist advice in respect of those wishing to effect Pre-Nuptial Agreements, prior to a marriage.

Pre-Nuptial Agreements have made headline news following the widely reported Supreme Court decision of Radmacher.

In order for Pre-Nuptial Agreements to be taken into account on Divorce, it is essential that they are properly prepared and implemented – to include each party entering into the agreement freely and without pressure, both sides receiving independent legal advice from qualified Solicitors and involve a full disclosure of the parties’ financial circumstances.

Pre-Marital Agreements

Pre-Marital Agreements, as they are also known, can be suitable for all parties wishing to marry, who have assets to protect and wish to agree any future division in the event of a separation or Divorce. In addition, Pre-Nuptial Agreements will be of particular benefit to high net worth clients, couples marrying later in life, for second marriages and those with children of previous relationships (for whom they wish to protect assets).

We give confidential, clear advice for those simply considering their initial position and this can be conducted on a free appointment basis (see below). Thereafter we can prepare the agreement, handling matters sensitively and offer a friendly and amicable service allowing matters to be resolved with the minimum of fuss, and the pre-nuptial agreement to be prepared to meet your best interests.
