Divorce For High-Asset Couples

Many wealthy couples in Texas devise a prenuptial agreement to manage their assets and set forth rights and expectations for future asset division. Absent a valid premarital or postnuptial agreement, parties to a divorce must adhere to Texas community property laws. Under these strict laws, property division must be equitable - fair and just. An in-depth analysis of community and separate property is necessary when significant assets are involved.

Family lawyer Terry Hart employs his years of experience as a divorce litigation attorney to ensure he provides the court with detailed knowledge of the facts in contested divorce cases involving high net worth clientele. These individuals frequently have complex property division issues involving:

  • IRAs, pension plans and other retirement accounts
  • Mutual funds, stocks and investment portfolios
  • Income derived from rental properties
  • Business interests and liabilities
  • Employment executive packages

When appropriate, Attorney Hart utilizes financial experts to analyze community verses separate property, trace commingled assets, locate hidden assets, and obtain valuations of business property, investments and other assets.

Contested divorce litigation can be emotionally distressing and can cost more than amicable/uncontested divorce. Much is at stake, and it may be worth the time and effort to contest.
