... Prenups take on 21st century requirements Prenups take on 21st century requirements

10 December 2007

As more and more couples take out prenuptial agreements, in part prompted by high-profile divorces in which couples battle over how much each partner deserves, a new element of such documents has come into play.

The E-Nup relates solely to gadgets owned by a couple, enabling them to divide their technological assets between them should they split up.

The idea was the brainchild of Lloyd & Platt Solicitors and has been brought out at Christmas since this is a time when many people come into possession of more gadgets, but also when more couples decide to break up.

Currently UK homes house 11 billion worth of gadgets, from games consoles to kitchen appliances to computers, many of which are purchased as a couple, prompting difficulties if it comes to deciding who gets what..

Vanessa Lloyd Platt, a divorce lawyer who came up with the E-Nup concept, said: "Together with the house and the car, gadgets are the new battleground.

"We handle 500 divorces each year and in my 29 years as a divorce lawyer, Christmas is the most popular time for separations."ADNFCR-1043-ID-18388319-ADNFCR
