Prenuptial Agreements Not Yet Enshrined in Law
Despite reports in the Daily Mail on 4 February 2014 that the Law Commission has recommended that prenuptial agreements are to be enshrined in law, no such report or recommendations have been published by the Law Commission. The legal position in England and Wales in relation to prenuptial agreements therefore remains to be guided by case law only. See our blog, “Prenuptial Agreements” for a guide as to recent case law regarding them.
The Law Commission is however due to publish a report on Matrimonial Property, Needs and Agreements on 27 February 2014 in relation to plans to reform divorce rules. Keep posted for an update!
