Family law issues for footballers

What are the key legal issues footballers and other high net worth individuals should consider when getting involved in a serious relationship and/or starting a family?

As part of our ongoing project following the career of promising young Brazilian striker, Reevaldo, we've attempted to answer this question in a two-part series, written by the family law and sports law teams at Mills & Reeve.

By focusing on Reevaldo's relationship with his long-time partner, Carolina, we discuss cohabitation agreements as well as nuptial agreements in a practical and applicable context.

Below, you can find links to both parts of our series.

We're just getting started, so stay tuned for much more content sharing insight into key areas of the football industry.


Part 1

What are cohabitation agreements and when should high-profile athletes consider them?


Part 2

What are pre- and post-nuptial agreements and what are some key terms they should contain to best protect an athlete's wealth?
