I know a pre nup isnt reallyleagally binding in the UK, but have heard of a way of legally protecting your assets to a certain extent before a marriage and wondered if anyone could possibly point me in the direction of the correct terminology!!
Im actually asking this question for a friend who is getting married ( silly so and so i say but hey) anyway he got divorced about15years ago but never had a CO or financial settlement as was very young.... his fiance wants to protect her assets should his ex wife come after him in the future as was in the news a few weeks back... she is quite wealthy, he is not!
Ooh! Dodgy Turf!!! (I hear the alarm bells ringing!)
My best friend was an intelligent wealthy journalist. She married a painter-decorator guy, who moved into her half-million pound home with nothing put his cricket bag and the shellsuit he stood up in!
Once married, an ex-girlfriend of his (not even ex wife) realised he's married well, and got a financial claim from my girlfriends income!
When my friend was diagnosed with Cancer, couldn't work and couldn't make the payments toward a child that isn't even hers, this ex then gave her much grief, and demanded her child added to the Will, as being a beneficiary to the house!
