Preventing legal conflicts of prenup in Texas divorce

Two people who wish to be married and who have valuable properties and assets need to protect themselves against the down-the-road possibility of a high asset divorce.

Divorcing spouses in Houston are probably relieved when the papers are finalized; however, couples with children may have different points of view after the divorce.

When parents divorce each other, they will need to resolve the issue of child custody, and in most of these cases one of the parents will be required to pay child support. In Texas, the amount of a regular child support payment may depend on the number of children and the needs of the child, such as the child's everyday expenses and health care. The parent's child support obligations must be paid, or serious consequences will follow.
