Deciding on these important issues from the outset of your marriage can save your family a great deal of emotional turmoil when you are already going through the stress of death or divorce. When you speak to our Oakland County mediator, we can help you come up with a solid plan to help minimize potential disagreements and put the control in your hands.
Why Are Marital Agreements Important?
Both pre- and postnuptial agreements encourage communication about important issues and minimize conflicts over money, business interests, and property gained before your marriage, which are some of the leading causes of divorces in Michigan.
In addition, marital agreements can help protect inheritance to future generations, children from prior marriages, and agree to issues involved in your estate plan. Separate and joint property can be established and all decisions about how your assets will be divided can be settled. This can not only make divorces less contentious but give you one less thing to worry about in the event of an untimely death.
