The division of marital property is a crucial component of any divorce in Texas. Unfortunately, some spouses are not above hiding assets to better their position in a contested divorce. For that reason, it is important that you retain an experienced family law attorney who is capable of finding hidden assets, properly valuing assets, and then negotiating or litigating an outcome that protects your interests.
When it comes to finding hidden assets and protecting your property rights, there is no substitute for experience. At Laura Dale & Associates, in Houston, our attorneys have more than 50 years of combined legal experience and are board certified in a number of specialized areas.
Finding Hidden Assets In Divorce
In Texas, property settlements in divorce are governed by our community property laws, which presume that all property is community property unless shown to be separate property. In order to accurately unwind an estate and divide property fairly, all marital assets must be properly characterized, accounted for and valued.
Hiding of assets is a problem often encountered in high-asset divorce, an area in which we have a great amount of experience. We are skilled at uncovering assets that can have a critical impact on property division matters such as:
- Offshore bank accounts
- Business assets
- International assets
- Deferred compensation
- Stocks and retirement assets
