Pre-Nuptial Agreements

The Makin Dixon team can try to protect your assets by way of a pre-nuptial agreement prior to marriage.  This is an important element of the provision of our Islamic legal services advice and we would strongly recommend that such advice is obtained prior to entering any such agreement.

A Pre-nuptial agreement can outline what will happen to the parties financial affairs should the marriage break down.  This agreement would need to be executed prior to marriage by the parties and is particularly relevant if one or both parties have assets they accrued/inherited prior to marriage and wish to protect or limit any claim the other party may have upon them.
