The Property Settlement Tools And Professionals You Need
My firm can help you with asset valuation of your home, business, retirement savings, 401(k), stocks and bonds, so you know what your assets are worth. When it is necessary, I can call in financial experts who can provide guidance in key aspects of your case. I can also help you understand how asset division affects other parts of your divorce settlement such as spousal maintenance.
Helping You Keep Your Separate Assets
While certain assets and items will be subject to marital property division, some things are considered by the state of Texas to be separate property. Assets such as inheritances, gifts and proceeds from a personal injury case are considered separate property, and if you can prove their origin, you will be able to retain 100 percent of what is rightfully yours.
Complex Property Division
I have experience in complex property issues involving high net worth couples, the ownership of businesses and other matters such as equitable distribution. This includes the tax consequences of potential asset sales. Creative asset protection measures are possible. My firm will work hard to protect your rights and interests at all times.
