Marriage planning is the newest, most innovative and exciting area of family law today. Each year, more engaged couples seek out experts who can help them structure their lives for marriage.
Engaged couples want to know how to own and hold property, how to manage joint incomes, how to maximize pension and retirement benefits, how to handle inheritances, and what causes separate property to become community property after marriage. Many explore the pros and cons of premarital agreements.
Beyond education, the goal is to allay fears, open communications, allow engaged couples to explore possible alternative futures, and, ultimately, help them bring their lives in line with their dreams.
