Every day, Houston couples make the decision to divorce and are faced with a myriad of decisions related to property division, child custody, spousal support and more. Many such decisions are clearly defined by law which can help guide people through the divorce process to some degree, despite the high emotions that naturally tend to be involved.
In our previous posts we have talked about how prenuptial agreements could be challenged (and ultimately overturned) if they were challenged in court. Essentially, a court could set aside a prenuptial agreement if it is shown that one of the parties signed the agreement under duress, or clearly did not have time to contemplate the agreement. (For those who read our post on prenup etiquette, you will recall that these were two important mishaps to avoid).
In our prior posts, we discussed the potential financial implications of having a prenuptial agreement. With news breaking that Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa have reconciled, we can't help but to believe that love is sometimes more valuable than money.
In our last post we discussed the potential for the prenuptial agreement signed by former Atlanta Braves outfielder Andruw Jones and his wife to be invalidated. Essentially, prenuptial agreements can be challenged (and defeated) through a showing that one party did not fully disclose their assets or if one party was coerced into signing the agreement.
Baseball fans in Houston are likely aware of former major leaguer Andruw Jones' solid reputation behind the plate. Since leaving the American baseball scene, Jones has gained attention for a serious family law issue involving his wife of 10 years.
The Los Angeles Lakers' relationship with Phil Jackson has been one of the most complicated in professional sports. After a moribund start to the season which led to former coach Mike Brown being dumped five games into the season, the Lakers flirted with bringing back the coach with the most championships in NBA history (five with the Lakers) only to settle on Mike D'Antoni.
