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.
