Family Agreements

Family agreements allow you to control your family’s future in both good times and bad. Many clients only think of them in the bad contexts and wrongly try to avoid them out of either a sense of optimism or a belief that it could never happen to them. But the truth is that family agreements can help everyone.

Financial Agreements Family law

In good times, family agreements help strengthen relationships. Many marriages and other relationships fail or have difficulties because of disagreements over money. Often, these started as small issues that simmered over time as neither person was willing to bring them up. When you create a family financial agreement, it forces you to sit down and have a detailed, honest talk about finances. This helps both to make sure you’re on the same page from the beginning and to make it easier to talk about money in the future when things change.
