Pre-nuptials and post-nuptials
Modern marriage is more than romance, it is also a contract between two very different people. Many of the anxieties of blending your life with another person can be avoided with an honest discussion before marriage (pre-nuptial) or when things change in a marriage (post-nuptial). The goal of a good agreement is to 1) avoid the disagreements in the future that can lead to a divorce and 2) allow the parties to move forward with more certainty if divorce is necessary. It all starts with a conversation.
Keeping children safe with their loved ones is as important to me. I am inspired by extended families and parents who want to love and protect children, especially in times of transition.
Simple and Statutory Wills
Making final needs decisions can be challenging and emotional but the process can also create peace of mind for you now and for the people you love. I know the benefits and hardships that families go through during times of loss and believe that good planning creates a chance for some harmony for survivors during hardship.
