Worried about your assets?

Only rarely have the English courts been asked to consider pre-nuptial agreements, and until recently they had given them very little, if any weight, in dividing up matrimonial assets.

Unlike many other countries, in England and Wales, pre-nuptial agreements are not binding on the courts, and are relatively uncommon.

Only rarely have the English courts been asked to consider pre-nuptial agreements, and until recently they had given them very little, if any weight, in dividing up matrimonial assets. However, following the House of Lords' decision in White v White, it may be that greater emphasis will be put on what the parties have brought into a marriage, which may make pre-nuptial agreements more important in England than they have been in the past.

What do I do now?

Our experienced specialists lawyers understand the worry and distress conflicts involving children can cause and approach all matters sensitively and sympathetically, for the benefit of all concerned.

We advise and represent children, parents, other family members and foster carers at all stages of the process. This starts from the earliest involvement of social workers and includes meetings, case conferences and any subsequent care or related proceedings, as well as the adoption process.
