Plot Synopsis

UNTYING THE KNOT is a reality series that follows divorce attorney and mediator Vikki S. Ziegler, as she helps divorcing couples come to a mutually agreeable resolution about dividing their assets, while avoiding the high tensions and high costs of in-court divorce litigation. As these couples struggle to divvy up their belongings -- ranging from dazzling diamonds to the family pets -- expert appraisers Michael and Mark Millea evaluate the items in question and help Vikki determine a fair division. Each 30-minute episode of the first season features a different divorcing couple, including Jacques and Mira, who are arguing over their assets, including a giant Buddha head and an apartment in Paris. Couples featured on this series received Vikki's mediation services free of charge. Season 2 of UNTYING THE KNOT premiered on Sunday, November 8, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT on Bravo, with celebrity divorce attorney and mediator Vikki Ziegler traveling the country to help couples "divorce with dignity" through mediation.This season, the eight episode series expands to an hour-long format as Vikki works with divorcing couples who are deadlocked in divvying up their most-prized possessions ranging from the family pet pig to a Lamborghini. Expert appraisers Michael and Mark Millea evaluate the items in contention so Vikki can determine a fair, equitable division of assets. Why let a judge decide your fate when this "divorce diva" can cut through all the drama? In addition to divorce mediations, Season 2 showcases Vikki's clients navigating many other intricate legal topics surrounding marriage and relationships including the 20 questions every couple should answer before they get married, pre-nuptial/cohabitation agreements and legal procedures for women who want to freeze their eggs and maintain sole control over them.
