The idea of a pre-nuptial agreement may be challenging, uncomfortable and overwhelming for you and for many couples. That is not surprising. But it is also a wonderful opportunity to explore your beliefs and expectations about many issues in marriage — parenting, money, roles, values, lifestyle and life goals. These discussions can strengthen your relationship and give you the tools, trust and communication skills to create the marriage you want. Whether or not you ultimately develop and sign a pre-nuptial agreement, the value of exploring and understanding your own and each other’s viewpoint is priceless.
Susan will facilitate the discussion in a safe, non-judgmental environment and help you sort through the issues to create an understanding or agreement that honors each of you.
Senior Care, Medical Decisions & Adult Dependent Care (Aging and Special Needs Family members)
It is not unusual for loving family members to disagree about the best way to meet the needs of dependent family members, whether aging parents, or special needs relatives. This may involve reaching agreements regarding financial or medical decisions, relationship challenges or short or long term care issues. Creating a plan and reaching agreement that can be supported by everyone will reduce stress and allow the family to focus on taking care of a loved one.
