Getting married is the most important legal partnership many people will form in life. Marriage is about love and commitment, but it is also a legal contract with rights, benefits and obligations that impact every aspect of one’s life including finances, property rights, and retirement benefits. Many couples are not well informed about the legal impact of marriage.

Interestingly, many couples only address the legal implications of marriage when one of them raises the possibility of entering into a prenuptial agreement. This program will introduce attorneys to the use of mediation and collaborative practice in negotiating and drafting prenuptial agreements. Our panel of experienced mediators and collaborative attorneys will explore the tools and the skills common to both methods of practice and their application to preparing prenuptial agreements.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define mediation and collaborative practice, and explore how to use these non-adversarial options when negotiating and drafting prenuptial agreements
  2. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of creating a prenuptial agreement
  3. Gain a comprehensive overview of the key aspects of a prenuptial agreement, and review a sample agreement
