A divorce mediator can help help you with many things.
A divorce mediator can help you reconcile the terms of your divorce but the same mediator can arrange your premarital agreements before you get married.
Throughout your adult life you will be required to make several life altering decisions. Perhaps none is as important as the who to spend the rest of your life with. But is there more to it than just proposing or saying I do?
We all like to think that our marriage will last forever, we have found our true soul mate and will beat the odds and live happily ever after. While in the throes of courtship and engagement, discussions may range from whether or not we want children, to how many to have at our wedding. While it is important to map out your plans during the time you are married or living together, it is equally important to map out a plan in the event that you are no longer together.
In the unfortunate case of a divorce or breakup, there suddenly becomes a host of issues that need to be taken care of. From joint finances to spousal support, the list can be long and you will be dealing with these issues at the same time as you are working through a whirlwind of emotions ranging from pain to anger. With the help of a mediator, you can put a premarital agreement in to place prior to the marriage, while you are both clear headed and not as emotionally charged as in the event of a divorce.
A few key points that may be discussed with a divorce mediator are:
- Management of finances
- Financial obligations from a prior relationship
- Treatment of premarital assets and debts
- Treatment of assets and debts acquired during the course of the marriage
- Spousal support/maintenance
