Additional Services

Flat Fee "a la carte" services, as needed.

Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement, also called a premarital agreement or a prenup for short, occurs prior to a marriage.

A postnuptial agreement, also called a postnup, is entered into after the marriage has taken place.

In either case, both spouses determine the parameters of the agreement, and come to a clear understanding on the division of assets, debts and other marital obligations in the event of a divorce or death.

  • All your questions answered.
  • All phone and email communication.
  • 1 hour meeting with attorney/mediator Michael Cotugno (via Zoom video, phone or in person).
  • Drafting and preparation of the agreement.
Conscious Divorce offers a $1,500 flat-fee prenup document preparation service for individuals and couples who desire a formal premarital or postmarital agreement.
Qualified Domestic Relations Order

A qualified domestic relations order, or QDRO for short, is a legal order, entered as part of a divorce or legal separation, that splits and changes ownership of a retirement plan to give the divorced spouse their share of the asset or pension plan.

QDROs apply only to employee benefit or pension plans subject to ERISA, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, the American law governing private sector pensions.

Conscious Divorce offers experienced QDRO preparation for a reasonable flat-fee of $1,200 (for most cases).
FRC Hearing Court Appearance

A Family Centered Case Resolution Conference (FRC) is a hearing at which the parties, their attorneys, and a judicial officer work together to develop a plan for managing the case and resolving issues as quickly, fairly, and efficiently as possible.

We provide this service for those needing assistance at the hearing.

There is a flat fee of $300 if Mr. Cotugno attends an FRC, but this can usually be avoided.
"A La Carte" Mediation Sessions

While most agreements can be reached in just one mediation session, we recognize that everyone's situation is unique.

If your circumstances are complex, or if you and your spouse need additional time beyond the 4 hours of mediation session included in the flat rate package, we do offer additional sessions.

Additional mediation sessions are available in 1 hour increments and can be purchased “a la carte”at $300 per hour.
