Navigate The Asset Division Process With Confidence

Property division is usually the main focus of divorce. Due to its complexity, this step can be the most contentious, stressful part of the process. It is vital that you have a knowledgeable lawyer who you can trust during this process.

At The Law Offices of Douglas Ray York, P.C., we are highly experienced in intricate asset division matters. We often represent Houston executives, professionals and clients who have unique property. Our attorneys can meet with you to discuss your financial and personal interests.

Proving The Status Of Property Is Essential

Texas is a community property state, which means that couples will equitably split any property that classifies as marital property. By default, courts assume that all property is jointly owned. However, a couple might already consider some property, such as educational loans or a business, as separately owned.

You will need an assertive, detailed divorce lawyer to help preserve your property. If you and your attorney do not effectively demonstrate that your property is separate using 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. has experience with the correct classification, valuation, protection and distribution of complex assets such as:

  • Multiple real estate properties
  • Retirement accounts
  • Business interests, stocks and investments
  • Personal belongings, collectibles and vehicles

The proper classification of your marital and separate property is critical to getting a fair divorce award. Through a combination of identifying all assets – including hidden or undervalued assets – and advocating for your interests, we can provide sophisticated counsel throughout your case.

A Prenuptial Agreement May Not Always Stand

If you created a marital agreement with your spouse regarding property division, it will likely shape your divorce outcome. However, depending on your circumstances, a marital agreement might not be valid.

Whether you seek to prove or challenge the validity of an existing contract, our attorneys have the skill to thoroughly assess its terms and represent your interests. The circumstances of life may have changed over the years, but we will protect your financial interests as they stand today.
