Getting Married And Prenuptial Agreements

Your life changes in many ways when you get married or enter a civil partnership. In the excitement of preparing for the big day, it is easy to overlook the fact that your legal position is about to change forever.

SWLaw helps you make the transition from single to married life with your eyes open, secure in the knowledge that you have planned properly for the future — whatever is in store.

Located in South Hams, we represent people from across Devon and the surrounding areas. With a dedicated team of financial advisers working alongside our solicitors, we can provide tailor-made advice on investments, insurance and other financial advice if you need it. Not every client needs this complementary advice, but many couples welcome the opportunity of an easily accessible financial health check from a firm they are already receiving advice from.

How We Can Help

If you have just got engaged or you are thinking of marriage or a civil partnership, get in touch. Our advice is always tailored to your particular needs but here are some of the main areas in which we may be able to offer valuable advice:

  • Wills and estate planning — Any previous will you have made will be invalid after you marry so it as advisable to update it when you marry. Since we have financial advisers on our team as well as solicitors, we can offer detailed advice on estate planning, family insurance products and a range of investments.
  • Prenuptial agreements — This type of contract between you and your future partner helps safeguard assets and plan for the future should the relationship break down.
  • Property matters — When getting married, you may be buying a home together or moving into a home owned by one of you. You may want to transfer some interest in a property you owned before marriage to your new spouse or make other changes to the way you hold property, including altering your mortgage.
  • Financial reviews — Our financial planners have a wealth of expertise on investments and insurance products that can help you and your partner make plans for the future.
