Pre and Post-Nuptial Agreements: protecting your assets.

In the event of a separation or divorce, a Pre-Nuptial Agreement can protect your assets. If you’re already married, a Post-Nuptial Agreement can set out expectations if you split up.

Your Free Family Law Pathway Awaits

It’s awkward to talk about a Pre-Nup.

We’ll help you have an honest conversation.

Nobody plans to separate when they enter into a wedding or civil partnership, but a Pre or Post-Nuptial Agreement can encourage you to have an open conversation about your finances, so you can be reassured that your assets are protected. If you have children, it can also help look after their inheritance. Right now, these agreements aren’t legally binding, but we’ll take you through all the options and help put the right safeguards in place.

The team at FBC Manby Bowdler were genuinely outstanding throughout and did everything they could to achieve the best possible outcome for me while avoiding unnecessary costs & delays.

Extremely happy with the whole procedure conducted from start to finish by Mr Philip Cowell. Your empathy and professionalism was exemplary at a time in my life when I was at my lowest! Sincere thanks for all your hard work and support. I highly recommend Mr Phil Cowell.

Phil Cowell

From Mr H

 

Anne Thomson is a woman of integrity and vast experience. As a U.S. Citizen married to a British citizen, my divorce was complex and difficult. With assets in multiple countries, legal actions in two countries in both civil and criminal courts, and a spouse who was devious and difficult, Anne kept the case moving forward and assisted me both with professional knowledge, clear explanations of the English legal system, and much needed emotional support.

 Anne worked tirelessly, and she and her staff showed outstanding professionalism and competence. She is a straight-talker who is capable, diligent and meticulous. I am grateful that I found the perfect solicitor, and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for the best legal counsel available.
