Premarital/Pre-Engagement Package

The cost for premarital counseling is $375, which covers all six sessions. A bonus seventh session is available six months after your wedding, if you choose to take advantage of it. Payment is due in full at your first appointment. Additionally, you will be responsible for the Prepare Assessment fee ($35.00) and the cost of any books you are required to read as part of your marriage preparation.

INITIAL STEPS

1. Each person will need to complete a New Client Package.

2. Each person will complete the Personal and Family History. Do this independently, without consulting one another.

3. Once you have completed the required paperwork, schedule your first session.

4. Come to Session One with your completed New Client Packages and Personal and Family Histories.
