New documentary shines light on adversarial divorces

Any Houston resident who has been through a contentious divorce is likely to warn their friends and family against drawn-out disputes. However, very few people begin the divorce process anticipating major conflict. In many cases, parties may even initially make informal agreements on many matters, both significant and minor. Still, as the process gets moving and details are finalized, original agreements may morph into major disagreements, making many wish they had known about collaborative law earlier.

TV host's situation shows link between prenups and custody

Either married or divorced, many Texas residents are likely to have a host of preconceptions about prenuptial agreements.
