It is posisble for there to be pre-nuptial agreements in the UK but in subsequent Divorce Proceedings the Court can decide to disregard it if they do not consider it meets the actual needs of the parties involved.
Technically this is the case if there is a UK divorce following a foreign marriage
However if there has been full financial disclosure; both sides have had independent legal advice and proper provision is made then it is likely to be accepted
Please ask if you need further details
Thank you for your answer, Clare.
Could you clarify what you mean by 'proper provision is made'?
That would depend on whether or not there are children, and what the reasonable needs of the parties are - but basically means that both spouses are able to move forward without one party simply keeping all the assets
