Monetary agreements (likewise known colloquially as ‘pre-nups’) are not for everybody, however they can be helpful:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • financial abuse
  • threatening behaviour

  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and causes them to fear for their security or wellbeing.
