At the moment it's a possibility that i will stay here forever, but I work in finance and i cant rule out the possibility that I will move to the US at some point even if i have no certainty this will happen. I know my fiance would love to go to NY or even other places in the world. Surely I won't go back to Italy.Thanks,
I would indeed like to know what's the best option for me and if the Pre Nuptial Agreement has any value in UK - I've heard that is not legally bonding. Also, I kinda of spoke to my fiance about this option and I think she was up for it. My problem is finding a solution that would preserve my pre-marital assets and those I will inherit from my parents in Italy. Thanks a lot
At present Pre Nuptial Agreements have no formal legal standing here in the UK HOWEVER recent case law has upheld Pre nuptial Agreements - especially involving partners from countries where such agreements are standard.
The agreement has to be signed at least 28 days prior to the marriage and there has to have been full financial disclosure by both parties - who also have to receive separate legal advice If there is no such agreement then the eventual settlement will depend on the length of your relationship and whether or not there are children involved.
If the divorce happens in the uK then any and all assets that you each have will be brought into consideration - although that does not necessarily mean that they will be shared.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
Thanks for your response. Sorry but I'm still confused.Let's say we do NOT do a prenup. What happens to the flat I own here in London in case of divorce WITHOUT children? What happens to the money she has in USA?Will she have claim to the house? Will I have claim on the trusts in USA?Also, lets say I sell my property and with the proceeds we buy a bigger one but my fiancé doesn't put any or just some cash in the new one and the mortgage is on both names. What happens in case of divorce? Will she be entitled to 50% of the value of the house? Or is the percentage going to be proportional to the amount of cash she invested?
This is very helpful, thanks. 2 last questions and I'm done... 1) Can you please make the same example but having 1 or 2 kids2) What's the cost for a Prenup generally? Does the prenup need to be done in UK?Thanks,
Hi Clare - did u get the rating? do I have to rate every single answer or did I do correctly?
