Hello,

It is a personal choice but the US may be a better choice if you wish to make a pre nuptial agreement specifying how each of your assets are to be divided in case of a divorce.

Hope this helps

My US fiancée has no assets whatsoever, she is a widow. I presume a prenuptial agreement made in America would help protect my assets in the event of a divorce, and i wish to return to the Uk. Is this the advice you would give me ?. How much protection would a prenuptial agreement grant me in the US....100% ??????

Hi
Thank you for your question.
How far have you gone with looking at the Immigration requirements for the States?

Nothing is 100% guaranteed and there are legal requirements for such Agreements to be valid for example each of you require independent legal advice etc. you should appoint a local lawyer to advise and draft one for you.

You will also need to go through the correct immigration formalities if you wish to get married in the US or if your fiancée were to come to the UK to get married, there are fiancée visas available which would enable either of you or her to get married in either country.

Hope this helps
