Our experience with the resolution of community property issues in Texas divorce can give you an advantage toward a favorable settlement or decree, no matter how extensive or complex your marital estate happens to be. We are familiar with the negotiation, mediation and trial techniques that can protect your interests across a wide range of property division problems.
The general rule is that any property acquired by either spouse during the marriage, with a few exceptions-such as assets acquired by gift or inheritance, is part of the marital community and subject to division between the spouses. This presumption can only be overcome by clear and convincing evidence showing that the asset is separate property after all.
For many assets, such as the appreciated value during the marriage of one spouse's separate property, the advice of an experienced divorce attorney will be essential to an accurate analysis of just what's in and what's out of the marital estate. You also stand to benefit from our litigation experience if a restraining order is necessary to protect your financial position at any point of your divorce. Our experience with the development and presentation of evidence in property division disputes can help you get your fair share of the marital estate, whether it's simple or complex.
