Relationship and prenuptial agreements
Irrespective of how many relationships start, it is a fact that many relationships end in separation or divorce. It is of utmost importance that a definition be placed upon how assets held either individually or collectively by the parties be dealt with in a happy relationship or in the event of a breakdown in the relationship.
The drafting of such an agreement requires skill, diplomacy and a good understanding of your requirements to ensure that the desired outcomes are achieved should a separation occur.
It is also importanat to update any relationship agreement from time to time. An at the start of a relationship may not necessarily meet your needs after severl years. When purchasing or selling property, land or businesses, consider reviewing your relationship / prenuptial agreement.
