What is a prenuptial agreement?
A prenuptial agreement provides clarity for couples in respect of their finances and children in their relationship. A Prenuptial Agreement is suitable for both marrying couples and couples about to register their Civil Partnership.
The Agreement must be entered into voluntarily, each party having had independent legal advice and must be signed at least 21 days prior to any wedding or civil partnership ceremony.
Your lawyer will obtain the information needed from you and create an agreement for your signature. The Courts are not obliged under UK law to keep to the agreement but unless there have been significant changes they are likely to regard the agreement as very persuasive. As a result of recent case law, provided the relevant conditions are met, they are more likely to be upheld.
What’s included in the fixed price?
Our fees: £1,500.00
VAT on our fees: £300.00
Total of £1,800.00
The price includes drafting and amending the agreement as well as time for discussions and advice for you. It assumes that you have agreed the general nature of what you would like to happen if your relationship ends. If you are in dispute about an aspect of this you will need advice beyond that provided by the fixed fee. If you believe this applies to you contact Woolley & Co to obtain a quote.
Obtaining the information we need to be able to draft the agreement
Telling you of issues you might wish to consider
Drafting the agreement
Arranging for correct signature
Storing the original
You will be allocated a lawyer to draft the agreement from amongst our team of full qualified and experienced family law experts.
You will be provided with email, direct dial and mobile telephone contact numbers for your lawyer and be served under the terms of our Client Charter which includes a number of guaranteed service standards offered to all clients.
Assets over £1 million
This fixed price above is valid in cases where the assets of the couple concerned are below £1 million. Where there are assets above this level a much more detailed investigation of the finances is required which may involve other advisers (for example IFAs and pensions specialists) and the discussions and negotiations may take longer. If you believe this applies to you contact Woolley & Co to obtain a quote, we would expect to be able to agree a fixed fee having discussed your particular circumstances.
Any work required in excess of the hours shown above will be charged for at our normal rates but will only be on the basis of our Client Charter and only after informing you in advance.
Why pay a fixed price?
By paying a fixed price at the start of your case you have certainty about the costs involved. The alternative is to pay an hourly rate for the time your lawyer spends on your case. We believe you should pay for the work that needs to be done, rather than the time it takes to do it.
