Fight For What's Yours
Go Through The Asset Division Process With Ease And Confidence
Property division is often one of the primary focuses of a divorce. Because of its complexity, this step tends to be the most tedious and stress-inducing part of the process. It is imperative that you have a notably experienced and shrewd layer who can provide exceptional legal counsel through the entire ordeal.
At The Law Offices of Douglas Ray York, P.C., we offer accomplished and seasoned high-asset divorce lawyers who are capable of handling all varieties of intricate asset division matters. We are accustomed to representing affluent Houston executives, professionals, and clients who have unique properties. Our attorneys are ready to meet with you to go over your financial and personal interests.
A Prenuptial Agreement May Not Always Cut It
If you have a marital agreement with your spouse regarding property division, it will likely shape the outcome of your divorce. However, based on your particular situation and the details surrounding the divorce, a marital agreement might not always be held as valid.
Whether you wish to prove or challenge the validity of an existing contract, our divorce lawyers have the skill to thoroughly assess its terms and best represent your interests.
Why Proving The Status Of Property Is Essential
Texas is a community property state, meaning that couples will equitably split any property that is classified as marital property. By default, courts assume that all property is jointly owned. However, a couple may have previously deemed certain properties, including educational loans or a business, as separately owned.
You will need an assertive, detail-oriented Houston divorce lawyer to help protect your property. If your attorney cannot effectively show that your property is separate through documentation, witnesses, financial expert testimony, and other evidence, your soon-to-be ex-spouse could potentially receive it in the final award.
Our team at The Law Offices of Douglas Ray York, P.C., is capable of providing quality legal counsel when dealing with the following classification, valuation, protection, and distribution of complex assets:
- Multiple real estate properties
- Retirement accounts
- Business interests, stocks, and investments
- Personal belongings, collectibles, and vehicles
The proper classification of your marital and separate properties is critical to ensuring a fair divorce award. Through a combination of identifying all assets – including hidden or undervalued assets – and advocating for your interests, we can offer sophisticated guidance during your unique case.
