Fight For What's Yours
You Worked Hard for What You Have; Don’t Let It Go Without a Fight!
If you are facing a divorce and own substantial assets, it’s understandable that you would be concerned about how much you will be able to keep. This is especially true for wealthy business people, sports professionals, well-to-do individuals, and their spouses who contributed to their success.
Logically, you want to retain as much of your rightful share of the marital wealth as possible, and rightfully so. In order to defend your assets and your rights while reaching a suitable and amicable result, it is essential that you retain a high net-worth divorce attorney who has exceptional negotiation skills, real-world courtroom experience, and a dedication to your rights under Texas law.
At The Law Offices of Douglas Ray York, P.C., our team of Houston divorce attorneys are prepared to provide dedicated legal counsel as you deal with your divorce. We have more than 20 years of experience in high-asset divorces and family law, with a focus on complex property division matters.
Divorce Attorneys for High-Net-Worth Individuals: Helping You Retain Your Share
Texas is a community property state, which means that every asset and debt that is categorized as jointly owned by the divorcees is divided equally. Assets that are NOT jointly owned are known as separate property and go to the spouse who owns it.
Our Houston divorce attorneys for high asset owning individuals will work diligently to accurately identify communal property assets, ensuring an accurate valuation of each item and effectively negotiate a settlement with your former spouse.
Because the division of property can be contentious, especially in divorces between affluent spouses, we work hard to accurately follow all specific laws defining community and separate property, while helping you retain your property rights over your assets, including:
- Family-owned businesses;
- 401(k)s, Roth IRAs and other retirement portfolios;
- The family home, vacation homes, commercial properties, and other real estate holdings;
- Valuable chattels such as artwork and antiques.
Please note that you do not have to earn the majority of household income during the marriage in order to be considered to have earned half the value of the community property. You may be entitled to an equal share if you indirectly contributed, such as being the primary household keeper and child raiser.
Your Children are Your Priority, and Our High-Asset Divorce Lawyers Work Hard to Protect Them During Divorce
Our divorce attorneys are capable of resolving more than property division issues. We always have your children’s best interests at heart, offering sustainable and practical child custody and child support plans.
We recognize that children are, unfortunately, often used as bargaining tools by disgruntled spouses, so we do everything within our power to minimize emotional upheaval. A divorce can be challenging enough for a child, and we want to do what we can to limit this issue.
Our experienced Houston high-net-worth divorce attorneys also frequently work with parents in resolving international child custody disputes as quickly as possible.
