Pre-Marital Mediation Utah
Pre-Marital and Post-Marital agreements can be very beneficial to both parties; however, the idea of writing a pre- or post-marital agreement can be a very touchy subject. Using a mediator to work out the details of such an agreement is instrumental in keeping both parties happy without damaging the relationship. These agreements are most common when one of the spouses has been previously married and does not want the division of assets left to the state.
Pre-marital and post-marital agreements can also be very helpful to work out the financial details of the marriage. This can include issues such as, whether or not there will be a sole provider of income and, if so, who that will be. If there are children from a previous relationship it can also include details about child or spousal support and how that will be paid. A pre-marital agreement helps both parties go into the marriage with full awareness of the other party’s financial condition.
A pre-marital or post-marital agreement can also help the couple decide what to do in the event of the death or disability of a spouse. If there are children involved, it is particularly important to decide what will happen in advance. A mediator can help the couple make these important decisions and create a mutually beneficial agreement. Each spouse can seek individual legal counsel before finalizing the agreement and request any changes he or she feels necessary.
