Pre and post-nuptial agreements

You may be about to embark on marriage, civil partnership or a cohabiting relationship, but wish to protect certain business or personal assets.

Some people are surprised to learn that in Scotland, pre-nuptial (and post-nuptial) agreements, as well as cohabitation agreements can bind  the parties.  A growing number of people are entering into these agreements before setting up home or getting married.

You may also want to consider other methods of protecting your assets, such as putting certain of them into trust, or simply preparing an appropriate will.
