Keep the peace in a high asset divorce

Texas is a community property state. This means that marital property in a divorce is typically split 50/50 between spouses. In a high asset divorce, such issues can be complex and stressful to resolve, especially if a spouse refuses to sign the agreement. Keeping a few helpful tips in mind can mitigate stress and can help a concerned spouse make sure that he or she obtains a fair settlement.

Be assertive but respectful

Divorce can be a complex journey, but it doesn’t have to be filled with animosity if both spouses are willing to collaborate and find middle ground, especially when it comes to dividing property. Being open and honest about financial matters is important so the court can make the best decision about how to divide the assets. Each spouse has a rightful duty to advocate for their interests assertively. When both partners approach the situation openly, treat each other fairly, and honestly share details about their assets and debts, the path toward a satisfactory agreement becomes much smoother.

Identify separately owned property

In the intricate landscape of high asset divorces in the state of Texas, a common aspect that often comes into play is the identification of separately owned property. Unlike community property that is subject to division between spouses, separately owned property retains its distinct ownership, and its treatment during divorce proceedings requires a meticulous approach. Separately owned property typically includes assets acquired before the marriage, inheritances designated to one spouse, and items agreed upon as separate through legal agreements or actions. Distinguishing this property from the pool of shared assets is important since it has a direct bearing on the equal distribution of wealth and resources. By accurately identifying and categorizing separately owned property, couples and their property division attorney can navigate the complexities of high asset divorce cases with precision and fairness, ensuring that the interests of both parties are appropriately safeguarded.
