K V K (Ancillary Relief Prenuptial Agreement) 2003

Of course, these comments were geared towards an agreement reached in the courts between spouses who had already separated and which continued the result of an application for financial discharge already made; They were, however, designed to emphasize the benefits of the attempt to reach an agreement, either before or after the marriage, and after a possible separation [11] into K/K Ancillary Relief: Prenuptial Agreement[ 2003] [19], which the parties had entered into on a pre-marital agreement that the woman wanted to avoid. Rodger Hayward-Smith QC, who served as an assistant judge on the High Court, decided that it should be upheld on its terms for the most part. It was recognized that the husband had been put under pressure to marry, on the condition that the wife`s rights to capital would be provided in the event of an early collapse, as stipulated in the pre-husband agreement. In this case, the marriage lasted 14 months. The woman had a $1 million trust and was tied to the capitalization of the $120,000 agreement, while she was claiming $1.6 million. The husband had at least $25 million. The Tribunal`s approach was that adherence to the agreement should be considered “conduct that would not be justified” according to the 1973 MCA, s 25 (2) g). The pre-marital agreement provided that in the event of separation of the parties, the husband would pay the wife $100,000 in the event of separation of the parties for 6 months or more within 5 calendar years of the date of the agreement, plus 10% interest rate. The provision and nature of the negotiations that preceded the agreement made it clear that the parties intended to make the agreement effective only in the event of a short marriage. However, since the agreement provided an adequate financial provision for all children, but did not provide for an income rule for the wife, the court concluded that the agreement did not prevent the imposition of periodic payments for herself and that such a ban would in any event be unfair to the wife. Although the woman signed the pre-marital contract only three days before the marriage broke up, she nevertheless had to be bound by her terms, which had fully understood the agreement and who had been duly informed of her terms on that date. In particular, it was found that she had not been put under pressure to sign the agreement and that she did not feel under any other pressure when she signed the same thing.

She exercised her own free will and the husband had not exercised a dominant position. Again, although there was no full disclosure, it was the woman who, as recommended, had decided not to follow the valuation of the disclosed assets. But she knew perfectly well that the husband was very rich. In addition, the agreement was reached knowing that there would be a child and there have been no unforeseen circumstances since the agreement to keep the unjust woman. In Crossley – v- Crossley [2007] – Hero: “All these cases depend on deritier dependence, and this is a very exceptional case of its facts, but if there is a case in which the court will consider the marital agreement not only as one of the marginal facts in the case, but as a magnetic significance factor, it seems to me that this is precisely such a case… Baron J in A/T [2004] [204], in “all the circumstances” of the case, held that the English court should consider cultural factors when the parties came from an ethnic origin, and in this trial the court may take into account how the case would be handled by jurisdictions in a foreign country. Therefore, it was important to consider a pre-marriage agreement under Sharia law.
