Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I'm just reviewing your question.
My pleasure. My view is that you need to update the prenup if things change sif=gnificantly, with something cleverly called a 'post-nuptial agreement'. The postnup clarifies the change in circumstances.
Neither prenups or postnups are completely binding on the court in a divorce though, UK law does not recognise them in the same way that US law does, for example, but they do help provide a blue print for financial settlement should the relationship break down.
Can I clarify anything for you?
It can still be taken into consideration, but as I said they aren't completely binding. There is more chance of the court following the prenup/ postnup if it reflects the actual situation not a previous arrangement. So updating is advisable.
I hope that clarifies the point?
