Prenuptial, separation and cohabitation agreements

Hero Aberdeen Lighthouse

Looking after your interests.

Whether you’re getting married, entering a civil partnership, moving in together, or separating, our specialists can offer sound, pragmatic advice as well as draft binding agreements.

Prenuptial agreements

Dealing with all, or just some, of your assets, prenuptial agreements can provide clarity for you and your partner before your civil partnership or marriage.

Our team can prepare a prenuptial agreement on your behalf, and we recommend advice is sought well in advance of your wedding.

Separation agreement

Setting out terms such as division of assets and share of any pensions, a separation agreement, or minute of agreement, is a document that records an agreement reached between a separating couple who have resolved matters without court intervention.

This means any subsequent divorce is likely to be a cost-effective, straightforward process, without either party having to appear in court.

If a settlement is reached through negotiation, collaboration, or mediation, we will draft an agreement to record the settlement terms.

Cohabitation agreement

For couples considering cohabiting, it can be a good idea before you move in together to make an agreement to protect your assets and avoid a potentially expensive court dispute should you break up.

In certain circumstances if you do split up, we can negotiate a settlement, and you can enter into a minute of agreement, which forms the legal basis of your separation.

Alternatively, we can advise you if a court procedure is required.

In most cases, we offer a fixed fee initial meeting, giving preliminary advice as well as guidance on the next steps, including a clear explanation of our costs going forward, if you decide to proceed.
