The importance of courtroom decorum in a high asset divorce

Going to court can be stressful for a divorcing spouse. Few people enter a marriage expecting the relationship will later become unsustainable; fewer still anticipate having to go over the details of things like property division and alimony in a courtroom. While Texas law offers ways to avoid divorce court, such as divorce mediation, these options may not work for everyone. Especially in cases of high asset divorce, going to court may be necessary to obtain a fair settlement.

The first month of the year, however, often brings its own sources of emotional stress: tax season is right around the corner, holiday bills often come due and many couples realize their marriage may not survive the coming year.

Many engaged couples find that broaching the topic of prenuptial agreements is a delicate task. Still, once the topic has been brought up and spouses agree that a prenup is right for them, they often breathe a sigh of relief and assume that the most difficult aspect of life planning is over.

After a marital contract has been agreed-to, many couples wonder: what should we put in it?

Artwork may factor in complex property division

In a Texas divorce, one of the more challenging aspects of the property division process is ensuring that assets are valued accurately. While it may be relatively easy to determine the value of marital property such as joint bank accounts or retirement accounts, other assets are a bit more difficult to value, but just as important. The family home, vehicles used by the family, jewelry, electronics such as computers and televisions, recreational vehicles and more all must be valued in order to ensure property division proceeds smoothly and fairly.
