Pre-Nuptial Agreements are not just for the rich and famous

Another day and another celebrity marriage that comes to an end.

Johnny Depp (52) is separating from Amber Heard (30) after just 15 months of marriage.  Johnny Depp is reported to have a $400 million fortune, accumulated from his successful Hollywood career and did not take out a Pre-Nuptial Agreement.  Amber Heard is now pursuing spousal support.

Pre-Nuptial Agreements are always seen to be the most unromantic way to start a married life.  However, people entering into marriage should always consider their financial circumstances and consider the protection that a pre-nuptial agreement could offer, if the marriage were to breakdown.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have had a short marriage and have no children together, so their financial situation has remained stable.  A Pre-Nuptial Agreement could have protected Johnny Depp.

Pre-Nuptial Agreements are not just for the rich and famous.  Pre-Nuptial Agreements can aim to protect any level of assets and savings brought into a marriage, so long as both parties entering into the agreement, consent. For further information please contact Rubina Vohra in our Family team via email or phone 08006891058
