Law Commission to publish pre-nup consultation document on 11 January

Law Commission seeks views on enforceability

The Law Commission has announced that it will publish a consultation document concerning the enforceability of pre-nuptial agreements on Tuesday, 11th January. Contrary to some reports in the mainstream press, the document will not constitute a final report and will not make any recommendations. Instead the Law Commission team, led by Professor Elizabeth Cooke, will invite contributions on a variety of options. The consultation period will last until 11 April.

The Law Commission document has been long anticipated but publication has been delayed to take account of the Supreme Court's judgment in Radmacher v Granatino.
