The emotions of prenuptial agreements, part 2

In part one of this post, we discussed the positive role that prenuptial agreements can play for many couples. For would-be partners who might otherwise have their marriage plans affected by unresolved property questions, a prenup can be a way to move forward by addressing the issues head-on.

Delicate conversations: the emotions of prenuptial agreements

Delicate conversations cannot be fully planned out. Maybe the subject is asking a marriage partner for a divorce after many years of marriage. Or, on the other end, it could be asking a would-be spouse for a prenuptial agreement before going through with the marriage.

Divorce and the family residence: what if you are underwater?

Six or seven years ago, the role of the family residence in a divorce property division was often easily resolved. Before the real estate crisis and Great Recession, it was much more common for couples to have equity in a home to tap. And it was far easier for a spouse who moved out of the house to qualify for another mortgage.

Collaborative divorce: the importance of organization

Collaborative law is a new approach to divorce that tries to cut through the conflict to find solutions that work for all concerned. This means a resolution that not only fits with the goals of each party, but also is in the best interest of any children involved.
