Complex Property Division

Property Division

Divorce is never easy, regardless of the dynamics associated with any case. Often, there are children whose lives will be impacted and even if you’re unsure, odds are, there are property considerations that must be addressed. Divorces affect finances on every level and not taking a hard, honest look at those dynamics can be costly. When it comes to divorce and property division in Texas, it’s always best to take a proactive approach over reacting to a spouse who didn’t underestimate this important element.

Our team of compassionate and experienced property division analysts understands those important legal nuances. Our goal is to provide our clients solid representation and guidance in matters such as how retirement plans may be divided (if at all), any jointly owned property, automobiles, financial accounts and who is responsible for maintaining the payments on those financial accounts, medical insurance and more. If you’re a business owner, it’s even more crucial.

Sugarcoating the realities surrounding divorce serves no purpose. While we understand the emotions that accompany the end of any marriage, our goal must always center on providing the best legal representation for our client – including putting all of the hard facts on the table so that they’re not overlooking options and certainly before a judge hears their case. For us, it’s about responsibility and ethical practices so that we are best representing those who trust us with some of the most difficult times in their lives.

Along with dividing the assets, there are also liabilities that must be decided or resolved. If the separation is overwhelming, you can be sure hashing out those financial truths can be excruciating for both parties. Few divisions are rarely half and half – whether it’s the assets or the liabilities.

Don’t forget the property that entered the marriage the same time you did. What you owned before may be deemed “hands off” by a Texas court. You have every right to defend those rights and assets, whether it was an advance on your first novel that you received the week before your wedding or an inheritance, courtesy of your grandmother who wanted nothing but the best advantages for her children and grandchildren.

Keep in mind, too, that while traditional legal routes are still preferred in these types of cases, a growing number in our contemporary society are finding great success with mediation. It’s an option that most certainly has a place in any qualified family lawyer’s toolbox.

It really does come down to the abilities of the attorney. We invite you to contact us to learn more about negotiating your property in a fair way, securing other complex property divisions or navigating custody of your children.

Jon, once again – Great job! I can’t begin to express how grateful I am for your overall knowledge of the law and your impressive trial skills. Simply outstanding! It may have been just another day at the office for you, but you’ve made a huge positive impact on my life and more importantly on my son’s life. Thanks again.

My experience as Jon’s client was stellar and I can’t imagine having gone through everything the last few years without him going to bat for me. My case was a high conflict child custody modification. Jon is incredibly knowledgeable and he expertly applied this knowledge to my case. He has a very confident, commanding presence in the courtroom and his loyalty to the success of me and my case was clear in his actions. Our outcome was better than I expected and I am happy with the results. He and his staff are diligent, skilled and worth every cent. If you need assertive, sharp, highly skilled representation, then I absolutely recommend Jon.

A most genuine ‘Thank You’ from me and my family. (I am) very fortunate that I found you in 2006 to represent me in battling The Devil in Divorce-Custody #1. It’s no secret that I hold you in high regard and probably place unfair expectations on your back to carry into battle with me. Just know that there is no one I trust more than you when it comes to guiding/representing/fighting for me and my family. You earned my respect and trust nine years ago now. I already know the quality of man I walk into the courtroom with. And that provides me a level of confidence which cannot be replaced. I’m loyal to a fault, my friend. The quality of your work and your office staff’s support and responsiveness have all been top notch in dealing with me and my family’s legal issues
