When getting married, planning for the future should be as much of a priority as planning the event.  Whether it is a first or second marriage for you or your intended, a blending of families, you have business partners, significant property and assets to address, or there are other issues of legal or financial responsibility that are impacted by a marriage. A Pre-Nuptial Agreement maybe just what you need to be confident that you have prepared for your future life together by examining how marriage will impact what you have built in your lives before.

More and more couples who are divorcing are fighting less and talking more. Mediation and collaborative law is an amicable approach to resolving the issues that arise from divorce and separation. These methods of dispute resolution help couples resolve issues that otherwise could cost them thousands of dollars through the courts. Mediation keeps the power to resolve their disputes with the couples and not with a third party judge. Do you think you might be able to come to an agreement if you just had some help in understanding the law and a place and process to talk through some of the tougher stuff? Do you want to potentially save thousands in legal fees? Let’s talk and see if this is an option for you.
