The Daily Mail has published that the Law Commission has recommended that pre-nuptial agreements are to be enshrined in law under plans to reform divorce rules. As of yet, no such report has been published by the Law Commission.
The Commission is due to publish a report on Matrimonial Property, Needs and Agreements on 27th February 2014.
The report will include a draft Bill. The report will reflect any points on which the Commission has changed its views during consultation. The final report will be laid before Parliament.
HHB Law have long been preparing pre-nuptial agreements for clients to secure their wealth. Although not yet law, they can certainly persuade a Court if entered into correctly.
