Texas Property Division Attorney
There are many strategies used to protect high net worth clients. If you and your spouse currently own a business, you may want to hire a business appraiser to determine the value so that you receive the fair share you are entitled to. We will also use experts, including forensic accountants, who are trained in tracing property and appropriate valuations at the time of divorce.
Texas is a community property state meaning that any property acquired during the marriage is considered "community" and must be divided in a "just and right manner" at the time of divorce. "Separate property" is property obtained prior to marriage or property obtained during marriage from inheritance or gift. If you want to protect your separate property, it is important to work with an experienced attorney who can effectively prove that you owned property prior to the marriage or that you received it as a gift or inheritance. In addition to high net worth cases, we also represent clients in the division of debts when they are going through bankruptcy.
