Marriage is a legal and business union as much as it is a romantic one. Because marriage is a legal and business arrangement, it may be wise to consult with an attorney about the advantages of premarital or prenuptial agreements. Many couples find it helpful to work through financial issues and the potential disagreements such issues can create before entering into a marriage.
Out of court settlement throughmediation is a good way to avoid intensifying the conflict involved in a divorce. Mediation is a voluntary process in which a neutral third party (the mediator) works with both parties to achieve a result both parties can live with. A mediator can help both parties accept that there is going to be an equitable division of property and debt and an allocation of parental responsibilities based on the best interests of the children, whether there is a prolonged court battle or not. Conflict is often the most damaging aspect of traditional divorce proceedings.
