Partner Kimberly A. Cook teamed up with attorney Laura Wasser on Thursday, October 24 to discuss all things dating, marriage and divorce at The Wing, a women-focused co-working space and club with offices across the country.
As part of the Q&A discussion held in Chicago, Kimberly and Laura shared insights on the emotional and financial toll divorce can take on individuals and ways to protect one’s assets. Attendees had the opportunity to educate themselves on the importance of establishing a prenuptial agreement prior to entering into marriage, as many do so blindly without awareness of the divorce laws in each particular state. Addressing potential issues and expectations when the state of a relationship is on good terms is key as it reduces some of the added complexities during the divorce process. Kimberly and Laura also addressed child custody, spousal support, relocation and the benefits of mediation, which provides more privacy to the parties involved.
