Mediation is an ideal format for working out premarital agreements. Mediating premarital agreements permits parties intending to marry to address and resolve together, in an affirmative and constructive setting, their future financial goals and plans. Mediation strengthens the future spouses’ communications skills and understanding of each other. By having future spouses work together on their premarital agreement, mediation avoids the potential polarizing effect of the traditional adversarial setting, in which the premarital agreement is negotiated by counsel representing each party separately. Working out premarital agreements using the collaborative practice model offers similar advantages to mediation.
Tobriner Mediation offers mediation and collaborative representation for negotiating premarital agreements, with the same processes and fee structure described elsewhere in this Website.
