Hi, thanks for your question. You should consider entering into a pre-nuptial agreement with your spouse prior to the wedding taking place. This can set terms of agreement such as division and protection of assets in the event of a divorce. However, in the event of a divorce the court will consider all the circumstances of the matter, including your needs, your spouse's needs and the needs of any children when deciding on how assets should be divided. At this point in time, the courts will take into consideration pre-nuptial agreements, but they have the power to make orders which are not in accordance with the agreement, depending on needs at the time of divorce. You should also be aware, that even if a pre-nuptial agreement is entered into - your spouse will have matrimonial home rights regarding the property, which means that she has a right to occupy the property until divorce or a court order excluding her from the property.Please provide a positive rating if you found this information helpful.
