Premarital Mediation

Jennifer has been mediating family cases in California since 2008. She has her law degree and specialized financial training, which provided her the CDFA® designation, which stands for a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst®. Here at SDFMC, we offer comprehensive premarital mediation services. This includes exploring both financial and non-financial issues prior to couples entering the contract to marry. It may also include crafting prenuptial agreements in the event the couple chooses to put together their own plan, instead of accepting the plan California automatically puts in place for them, upon entering the marital contract. Our premarital mediation is designed to foster robust, honest communication, laying the foundation for a healthy marriage.

So many people are frustrated with how difficult the divorce process is, while marrying someone appears to be so simple. Which, getting married itself can be simple, but the legal ramifications are not as simple. Most couples who enter into marriage do not understand the contractual terms they enter into when signing their marital contract. You may feel that a prenuptial agreement is unnecessary, and it might be. However, anyone and everyone should take the time to understand the complexities of their partner, and the complexities of the marital contract before entering into such a contract.

There are simple straight-forward tips that can help you and your soon to be spouse avoid expensive unwinding in the future. Many clients who come to us for premarital mediation do not enter a premarital (or prenuptial) agreement. Many come to just have the hard conversations before stepping into a complex set of rules and regulations that no one ex-lains to you before you walk down the aisle.

Here at San Diego Family Mediation Center, we offer you information to help you prepare for the unknown while not creating problems that do not currently exist.
