Tips for discussing a prenuptial agreement

When a couple in Washington decides to get married, they may want a prenuptial agreement. Even if a couple is simply planning on living together, a cohabitation agreement can help facilitate conversation and set expectations. It is important that both individuals have input into the agreement and are happy with it.

Why and how to create a prenuptial agreement

Washington couples who are planning to get married may also want to consider a prenuptial agreement. A prenup lays out a plan for how property will be divided in case of a divorce. Even couples who are not getting a prenup may want to visit a financial planner or a legal professional to find out how marriage will affect their ownership of property and how it will be divided if the marriage does not last.

How to prepare for supervised visitation sessions

Judges may order supervised visitation whenever they believe a child could be in danger while alone with a parent. While it may be frustrating for parents to have limited contact with their children, it is important that they make the most of each visit. Parents are encouraged to memorize the visitation schedule as well as any restrictions that are in place while the visits occur. They are also encouraged to follow the schedule as closely as possible.

A collaborative divorce is less stressful and can save money

A common reason why some Washington couples find themselves in family court working through a divorce is an acknowledged lack of communication. Perhaps it's too much to expect that a couple who could not get along during marriage will suddenly find the magic formula to be able to discuss and resolve areas of disagreement, but that's exactly what a collaborative divorce requires. If the two can put aside their differences long enough to look at the bigger picture, they may find that there are immediate and significant advantages.
