Are you aware that the site charges more a phone call?

So dar as the Uk is concerned the only way of protecting these assets is for the re to be a pre-Nuptial agreement in which his wife confirms she will make no claim on these properties in the future.

Such an agreement has to be signed at least 28 days prior to the wedding, after full financial disclosure and independent legal advice having been given to the bride.

Even then the family court has the power to ignore it if they consider it fairer to do so

My concern is that if the divorce happens in German then it is German divorce law which will apply to any settlement.

However German law does allow for enforceable pre-nuptial agreements so it may be worth having the agreement drawn up there

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
