Most divorces involve some form of property division, child custody arrangement (if children are involved) and support allocation. However, in high-end divorces, there are often far more complex asset and debt issues to be considered, such as:
- Future valuation of retirement funds, IRAs and pension
- Employee stock options and other employee benefits
- Business interests
- Professional degrees
- Real estate investments
- Significant marital debt
Under Texas divorce laws, all community property (marital property) is to be divided equitably, not necessarily equally. In order to obtain a fair property settlement, it is necessary to designate which property is subject to division. Therefore, our divorce lawyers perform an in-depth analysis of community property, separate property and co-mingled property.
Our divorce lawyers use accountants, business analysts, appraisers and other experts to determine current and future value of complex assets and debts, locate hidden assets and perform tracing to distinguish separate assets from co-mingled assets. If separate assets have been co-mingled with community assets, these assets may be considered marital property and thus open to property division.

Our divorce attorneys are committed to serving our clients’ needs and if litigation is the path that your divorce requires, our competent, capable attorneys will navigate the process with you.
