Is our pre-lockdown pre-nup still valid? Simon Blain answers the Financial Times reader's question

Family Partner, Simon Blain, answers a reader's question in the Financial Times' article entitled "Is our pre-lockdown pre-nup still valid?"

In his response, Simon highlights that it is not uncommon for pre-nups to be signed ahead of the wedding or even before a date has been set. He explains that a good pre-nup will be drafted to take uncertainty into account and designed to provide a fair framework for a financial settlement in a range of circumstances.

However, Simon advises those in doubt to contact their lawyer and seek legal advice as to whether the pre-nup should be reviewed given the new circumstances.
