Pre-Nuptial Agreements

Currently, there is no statutory provision which upholds arrangements of this type however it is clear that there is a shift in attitude towards them and their terms will, in certain circumstances, be upheld by the court in deciding any subsequent claim made.

It is vital that both sides to a prenuptial agreement have full advice from independent solicitors and full disclosure of the other party’s assets and income before agreeing to any terms in an agreement.

Forced Marriage Protection Order

If you are or someone you know is at risk of a forced marriage we can assist by applying to the court a Forced Marriage Protection Order (FMPO) against anyone who is perpetrating the abuse.
FMPO’s contain various terms which the court considers appropriate to protect an individual from being forced into a marriage.
