Post-Nuptial & Post-Civil Partnership Agreements

Solicitors in Essex & London

Our team of specialist family lawyers are recognised in Tier 1 of Legal 500 UK and will ensure you are guided and supported during this difficult process. Our family law department includes members of the Law Society’s Family Panel, accredited Resolution specialists and Collaborative Family Lawyers.

Post-nuptial or post-civil partnership (also known as post-CiP)  agreements do not achieve the same amount of publicity as their pre-nup or pre-civil equivalents. However, it is possible for married couples or civil partners to enter into an agreement about money and property in the event of future separation or divorce/dissolution.

Couples may want a post-nup or a post-CiP where an inheritance is received, or possibly where there has been a period of separation followed by reconciliation where one party seeks reassurance or financial security. Our experienced family lawyers are able to assist and advise on post-marital matters such as these.

We recommend that the following factors should be present in such an agreement in order to have the best chance of it being upheld in any future proceedings:

  • Both parties take independent legal advice
  • No pressure applied to either party to enter into the agreement
  • Full disclosure of the parties' respective financial positions with documentary evidence provided
  • Provision made for any children of the family
  • The terms of the agreement are fair

We recommend that you initially speak to one of our knowledgeable family lawyers for advice on the benefits of entering into a post-nuptial or post-civil agreement.
