Fathers in Texas love their children, even if they are no longer in a relationship with the child's mother. Seeking fathers' rights over child custody may be very complicated. There are even more obstacles if the parents are unwed.

Divorce is a complex process, and there are often strong feelings on both sides regarding the division of marital property. Some couples choose to avoid these types of fights by drafting a prenuptial agreement before they get married.

Starting business owners with limited resources, couples who married and moved and divorced spouses with children who remarried have the greatest need for a prenup.
