Make informed decisions during the divorce process

Since 1986, Trey Yates, a board certified family law attorney by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, has guided women through the trials and tribulations of divorce. He created The Guide to Good Divorce program to empower women with the resources they need to make informed decisions during the divorce process. At the heart of The Guide to Good Divorce is information and guidance from uniquely qualified experts on Texas divorce laws, divorce financial planning, life skills and wellness. We also encourage women going through divorce to explore opportunities to network with other women who are experiencing similar challenges.

Here are some resources we hope you find helpful and informative. Please check back often for newly added resources.
