Matrimonial survey reveals increase in prenuptial work

Grant Thornton's eighth annual matrimonial survey of family lawyers has revealed a continued increase in prenuptial work, with 58% of respondents saying that they had seen an increase in volume. Around 59% of those surveyed said that they expected further increases in volume over the coming year.


Making pre and post nuptial agreements legally binding has dropped from the number one area of legislation where family solicitors wanted to see change in the 2010 report, to the number four concern.


Protection for cohabiting couples (27%), the introduction of the no fault divorce (24%) and clearer guidance on self-help following the Imerman ruling (23%) have been the top three concerns cited respectively.
