Understanding What You Are Entitled To
In Texas, all property in the marriage is either classified as community property or separate property. Separate property would be gifts or inheritance that was specifically marked for one spouse or the other. It could also include certain assets that the individual held before the marriage. All other assets are generally classified as community property and eligible to be split equitably between the couple. This includes businesses, bank accounts, retirement accounts and real estate.
During a divorce, asset and debt division can be particularly difficult. The property division process is critical to the financial well-being of divorcing individuals. When a couple’s estate has high value, it is essential to work with an experienced family law attorney who knows where to look and how to value the assets involved with the divorce.

In more than 20 years of practicing law, I have handled all types of property division cases, including those involving businesses, investment interests, pension plans, 401(k)s, real estate and high-asset estates. I thoroughly examine entire estates and locate every piece of community property.
If one spouse owns their own business, the division of the marital property becomes more complex, as valuing the business must be done accurately. While issues of support and visitation are often subject to modification, matters involving the marital property settlement are almost never modified at a later date, absent a showing of actual fraud. You only have one chance to get it right.
