Agreements made in contemplation of a Civil Partnership

When you are planning to enter into a Civil Partnership, the last thing on your mind is likely to be the possible future breakdown of the relationship. We all enter long term commitments like civil partnership in the hope and belief that the future will be rosy. Unfortunately as we all know that is not always the case and the existence of a professionally drafted legal agreement in those circumstances could be invaluable.

Agreements of this kind are a relatively new concept. Whilst the law is still developing there is evidence that the courts are increasingly inclined to take such Agreements into account.

By entering into an Agreement of this nature a couple can record their wishes in the hope of avoiding what can be lengthy, unpleasant and costly legal disputes over assets.

An Agreement can be of particular significance and value where the parties to a civil partnership have introduced unequal proportions of wealth into the relationship.

At Shacklocks we believe that an Agreement entered into must be fair and carefully drafted in order to meet legal requirements. However, by putting those arrangements in place you may both be sparing each other increased distress and uncertainty in the event that your civil partnership breaks down.
