Nuptial agreements and inheritances

Recorded on: 08/06/2023

Family lawyers are frequently asked to advise on the drafting of both pre- and post-nuptial agreements (often referred to as nuptial agreements).

How has the law and practice surrounding the use and drafting of these developed over the years?

When would they be used? Are they only of use in cases involving disparity of wealth?

How does the court deal with matters relating to inheritance, when deciding on the division of marital assets?

Can pre-marital inheritance be ring-fenced, and if so, in what circumstances?

These and other questions will be answered in this webinar.
