The Importance Of An Accurate Property Valuation
For divorce clients with high-asset estates and complex financial portfolios, the valuation and division of marital property require close attention and skilled analysis. The stakes are high and your financial future is on the line. The attorneys at Moffett Law Firm have experience working with appropriate financial experts evaluating assets of all types, including the following complex asset classes:
- Real estate
- Stock options
- Trust property
- Business and partnership interests
- Insurance policies
- Pensions and retirement accounts
- Foreign and overseas properties
Our legal team is well-versed in the valuation techniques and strategies needed to present the most favorable values for our clients. We frequently utilize experts in forensic accounting to assist in valuing businesses, tracing money and expenditures, and determining actual income. We also work with private investigators to discover hidden assets and income streams and to ensure all property is accounted for.
Protect Your Separate Property
In Texas, only a married couple’s community property is subject to equitable distribution. Property that is acquired before the marriage or received during the marriage by gift or inheritance is considered separate property and not subject to division. However, distinguishing separate property from community property can be a complex endeavor, especially in high-asset estates where money and assets have been commingled.
At Moffett Law Firm, we work closely with our clients to identify and characterize separate property and work diligently to resolve any separate property disputes in our clients’ favor. In addition, if you entered into a prenuptial agreement prior to marriage, or a postnuptial agreement after marriage, we can help you analyze the strength and effect of that agreement as it pertains to your divorce.
