Accounting for Deaths in a prenuptial agreement

I do not want my partner to make any claims after my death

This depends if you are still married. In such cases this may be more difficult and you should seek advice from Mr Hancock and Mrs Zoller at this firm.

This can be provided or in any pre-nuptial that such claims cannot be made. But if parties have children then such claims cannot be avoided under section 2 of the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.

Should I get a will drawn up whilst I am considering a Pre-nuptial agreement?

It is best to have a drawn up. It is best to review a will at the time of marriage as any will should fit with what you have said in the pre-nuptial agreement. See Mr Hancock or Mrs Zoller about further advice on this and efficient tax planning.
