Serving Clients Throughout Fort Bend, Harris & Brazoria Counties
If you have worked hard and accumulated substantial assets, divorce becomes a more complicated matter. The stakes are higher, and the legal issues are more complex.
At the Tracton Law Firm, my support staff and I work as a team to assist clients with sophisticated strategies and creative solutions in high net worth divorce. I have more than 40 years of family law experience, helping individuals protect their rights in high-stakes divorce matters.
Proficient At Valuing And Dividing Complex Assets
It is important in these cases to be proactive in protecting your assets and/or establishing the fair value of investments, retirement accounts, 401(k)s, real estate holdings, stock options, and more, which are used to calculate spousal maintenance and/or child support obligations.
Does Self-Employment Affect A High-assest Divorce?
If a spouse is self-employed or a partner in a business, it may be difficult to determine his or her salary. I review tax returns, bank statements, and other key documents to gain an accurate assessment of total net worth.
If necessary, I use highly regarded forensic accountants, business appraisers, and other specialists to accurately assess the value of a family-owned business, investment property, or other assets. This provides a strong foundation from which to negotiate a settlement or present an argument to the court if a settlement cannot be reached.
Owning a Business in a Divorce
If you and your spouse own a business together, I will explain your options, which include continuing to operate the business together, having one spouse buy out the other spouse’s interest, or selling the business and splitting the profit or sharing the debt.
My thorough knowledge of marital agreements allows me to enforce or contest these agreements in accordance with your best interests.
