A pre-nuptial agreement is a legal agreement entered into by two individuals ahead of their marriage. The agreement will usually set out how the couple wish their assets and income to be divided should they later separate or divorce.
When two people marry, all of a couple’s assets become matrimonial assets. A pre-nuptial agreement is designed to try and limit any claims on those assets by the other party if the marriage ends.
Pre-nuptial agreements are not legally binding but the Supreme Court has said that they will be treated in the same way as separation agreements and post-nuptial agreements; the burden of proof will now be on the party who says that the agreement should be set aside.
