PRE-NUPTIAL AGREEMENTS GIVEN "DECISIVE" STATUS IN ENGLISH LAW - RADMACHER v GRANATINO
Recently, the Supreme Court of England and Wales handed down its much anticipated Judgment in the case of Radmacher v Granatino. This case involved a German heiress Katrin Radmacher (estimated to be worth £100m), who wanted to rely on a Pre-Nuptial Agreement, signed prior to her marriage, within her divorce proceedings. The case has received much publicity as the decision sheds light on the validity of Pre-Nuptial Agreements in English law. Hitherto Pre-Nuptial Agreements had not been persuasive on the Courts.
