When planning your wedding, we know that sorting a prenuptial agreement may not be the first thing on your mind. But although it may seem pessimistic, it’s actually a smart idea and can set your marriage off on the right footing. This agreement shows the trust and openness in your relationship and leaves you both in the best position possible should the worst happen.

Many people think that all legal processes are expensive, including a prenuptial agreement. In some cases, the perceived expense is the stumbling block when it comes to a prenup. However, you may be surprised as to how much an agreement actually costs. It’s probably much cheaper than you think!

Is a prenuptial agreement expensive?

This is the main question we get asked regarding a pre-nuptial agreement, which is completely understandable! If something is a sizeable investment, you’re going to want to know more about it before you buy.

The truth is, compared to the cost of a wedding – which enforces the distribution of assets in the event of a divorce – the cost of a prenuptial agreement pales in comparison. Ranging from £1,000 – £3,000, this agreement allows you to protect yourself, your partner, and your children if your marriage has ended.

With this in mind, it could be useful to start planning for your prenuptial agreement before you spend money on your wedding. That way, you can ensure you’re secured without running over budget.

Of course, a prenuptial agreement isn’t always necessary and is a choice to be made by both partners. If the cost is out of your price range, then it doesn’t have to be an option you go for. But with our many years of expertise in obtaining a prenuptial agreement in St Helens, we recommend that you secure your assets and your future.

Is a prenuptial agreement worth it?

With an investment of this size, it makes sense to wonder if it’s actually worth the cost! Due to the many long-term benefits that it brings, we’re almost always inclined to say yes. There are many advantages to a prenuptial agreement that many people do not know about.

For example, these agreements are open to review should the circumstances in a marriage change. So even though a couple may have no children at the time they enter into one, they can change the agreement if their circumstances change, to incorporate their children. This level of flexibility makes a prenuptial agreement an attractive proposition to couples all over the UK and beyond.

We’d say that if you’re looking to provide yourself and your family with long-term protection, then entering a prenuptial agreement with your partner is a smart thing to do. This way, you can rest easy knowing that if your marriage ends for whatever reason, you will be able to keep hold of your possessions in a way that is fair and accepted by both parties.
