Pre-nuptial, pre partnership, and postnuptial agreements

Prenuptial agreements are used to establish the financial responsibilities and assets of each party, prior to entering into the marriage, including, whom these assets and obligations will belong to if the couple get divorced.

Our experts can provide legal advice on prenuptial agreements, and help you to draft a document that reflects your needs. We can also help with:

  • Postnuptial agreements (these are the same as prenuptial agreements, but are entered into during a marriage as opposed to before).
  • Pre partnership agreements (these are the same as prenups, but are entered into before a civil partnership as opposed to a marriage).

At Crisp & Co, we can help you to create a legally binding prenuptial agreement, postnuptial agreement, or pre-civil partnership agreement, to afford you security and peace of mind for the future.

Cohabitation agreements

Many couples will choose to live together without ever getting married, and unfortunately, these couples do not have any automatic legal protection if their relationship comes to an end.

Our family law specialists can help you to create a cohabitation agreement that reflects your needs. These agreements are used to outline arrangements for finances, property, and any children, while cohabiting, and if the relationship breaks down.

If you would like to create a cohabitation agreement, please contact our cohabitation agreement solicitors in London.

Family dispute resolution

Family disputes have a tendency to be tense and complex, and unless the right approach is adopted at the beginning, these situations can quickly become all the more tense.

Due to our expertise in alternative dispute resolution, most of the time we can resolve family disputes without needing to resort to court action. Resolving matters out of court is preferable as it’s usually less expensive and time consuming than court proceedings.

At Crisp and Co, we can support you to resolve disputes using methods such as mediation or collaborative law:

Family mediation – We offer trained, neutral mediators who can arrange a meeting between you and anyone you are involved in a dispute with to discuss the issues involved and amicably agree a fair outcome.

This approach allows you to keep control over the process of resolving a dispute and is often the fastest, least costly and simplest way to agree a solution.

Collaborative law – If you have more complicated issues to resolve and are worried that you won’t be able to sort out the details yourself, collaborative law offers a good alternative to mediation that still aims to keep conflict to a minimum.

Both parties meet, each accompanied by their own lawyer trained in collaborative law. A four-way discussion then takes place with the goal of agreeing all of the details required to resolve the dispute and allow both parties to move on.

International divorce

Our family solicitors can support couples going through international divorces, including the application process, and various matters that may likely affect international couples going through a divorce, such as:

  • Support to arrange and divide overseas assets
  • Assistance to make arrangements for children, specifically where the parents wish to live in separate countries
  • Determining which country to apply for a divorce in, and consequently, navigating any country specific legal issues that may impact the divorce

  • Legal assistance with surrogacy law and help to draft surrogacy agreements
  • Guidance to access a Parental Order, (for surrogate parents)

Legal advice on matters related to assisted reproduction and artificial insemination, including IVF, IUI and donor insemination

Domestic violence
