Legal expertise alongside relationship coaching
Nobody goes into a relationship expecting it not to work out and the thought of having a conversation with your partner about your life plans can seem daunting or unromantic, especially in the early stages of a relationship.
Watson Morris Family Law 2Unify service offers legal expertise alongside relationship coaching to lay the foundations for a strong and secure relationship. This service will help you to address the practicalities of living together. Whether that is starting a family, combining your finances, thinking about your career aspirations or blending two households, our team will guide and support you as you plan your future together.
Your plans and wishes can be given legal effect through a cohabitation agreement or nuptial agreement. Such agreements enable you to specify how you will deal with financial and practical issues in the event that you separate in future, protecting both parties, whilst also reducing the stress, uncertainty and cost of having to unravel your affairs should the worst happen.
Our qualified coaches will work with you in a safe, non-judgemental way, to explore your wishes and feelings on a range of issues. With the support of a neutral third party, you may find it easier to discuss subjects that could otherwise be uncomfortable, or that you may not have considered, such as:
- Your relationship goals and aspirations
- Sharing your future prosperity
- Protecting the assets introduced at the start of your relationship
- Dealing with trust funds or other types of inheritance
- Ensuring family assets and heirlooms remain within the family
- Addressing the practical arrangements for blending two families
- Care arrangements and financial provision for existing or future children
- Arrangements for the education of your children
- Living arrangements for international families
- Inheritance and estate planning
Not every couple will need or want relationship coaching, but if you are entering into an agreement and there are sticking points that you’re struggling to find a way through, coaching can help. Our goal is for you to enter into an agreement not only knowing what you are agreeing to, but also understanding how you truly feel about issues that may influence your attitudes or behaviour now and in the future.
Another benefit of coaching is that it may reduce your legal costs; if you can discuss and agree the content of your agreement this will reduce the input needed by your lawyers.
We combine legal expertise with practical support that focuses on the wellbeing of your family throughout.
