About the Webinar

Nothing screams romance like a party bringing up their need for a prenuptial agreement, especially in the standard you hire an attorney to draft the agreement and the other party is not involved at all. The emotional togetherness of dating and marriage can instantly devolve into feelings of distrust. This program will discuss mediation process, strategies and examples that will help both educate the couple as well as create a fundamental basis for relationship success in handling their assets, finances, and other decisions during their marriage. Adding premarital mediation to your service offerings can allow you to expand the clients you work with and provide a rewarding experience for the mediator in setting clients up for a successful relationship built on a strong foundation.
