Do you have a hard time communicating about money with your spouse? Do you feel there’s a power imbalance in your relationship? Are you and your spouse in conflict over finances? Are you willing to put in the hard work to tackle money issues and save your marriage?
Marital Financial Mediation
We provide financial mediation in support of your marriage and economic partnership. We work with you through a process that helps you as a couple articulate your financial values and identify, analyze and resolve issues of discord. Financial mediation is a means to communicate and possibly reconcile different perspectives about money issues. With our help, you are better able to determine your future and have an action plan to measure and monitor progress toward your mutually agreed-upon goals. Sometimes this requires revisiting, amending or agreeing to end an existing prenuptial agreement. Communicating about money, changing behaviors, and aligning your values as a couple will result in the transparency, trust, and full disclosure that can strengthen your marriage.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can stimulate communication about financial topics and help manage expectations through gentle compromise. Postnup agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements, but they are crafted and signed after a couple is married. These sometimes maligned tools can be employed optimistically to enhance prospects for a long and happy marriage. On occasion, postnup agreements have helped a couple stay together. A couple whose marriage may be in trouble can be worried about what happens if they get a divorce. But if they can agree with a postnuptial agreement that decides what would happen financially should they get divorced, then they may have solved the problem and simply don’t have to argue about money anymore.
