How does the process work?
Each party will appoint their own separate lawyer to ensure that their interests are fully protected. Each lawyer will take full instructions from their client about what they wish to be included within the pre-nuptial agreement, their financial arrangements and wishes.
Once the two parties are in agreement, they will both sign the pre-nuptial agreement which then comes into force immediately.
How long does it take?
In practice, if there are details to discuss, it may take up to a month for a pre-nuptial agreement to be agreed and signed by both parties. However, if necessary the process can be completed in a shorter period of time, particularly if the agreement is relatively simple and both parties have agreed on the terms before starting the process.
