Article: The parties met in 2010, having both been previously married and divorced. W was the financially stronger party, with accumulated assets of £3m and a net income of over £100k. By contrast, H had transferred most his capital assets to his first wife and had no income. A prenuptial agreement was signed five days before the wedding which took place abroad in June 2010. The parties each gave a “dramatically different account” of how the decision to enter into a prenuptial agreement was reached; whilst H said was “taken by surprise” when he was summoned to a notary’s office to sign a ready-drafted document, W said that after careful deliberation, the parties jointly instructed a notary to draft the agreement. Neither party took legal advice before signing the document and no formal disclosure process was undertaken.
