Family Law Section Meeting


Collaborative Prenuptial Agreements

SPEAKERS
Susan Stephen Coats
Suzan Barrie Aiken

The essence of the “Collaborative negotiation process” is the shared belief of the participants that it is in the best interests of the Parties and their upcoming marriage to avoid adversarial negotiation methods. It is the joint intention of all participants to create the Parties’ Agreement in a manner that does not damage the Parties’ relationship and that strengthens, rather than endangers, their upcoming marriage. One of the major goals of the Collaborative premarital negotiation process is to minimize, if not eliminate, the potentially negative economic and emotional consequences of traditional premarital agreement negotiation processes.

The presentation will be followed by a time for Q&A.

1.0 CLE will be provided.

Ingrid Carbone and Kate Rockas
Co-Chairs of the MCBA Family Law Section
