Sophisticated clients should work with sophisticated attorneys. Individuals who own significant assets or who are considered high net worth individuals should work with legal counsel that understands the whole picture. The lawyers and experts at the JBell & Associates PC are mindful of your assets, financial obligations, liabilities and tax implications. Our team has experience solving complex property division problems arising from high-end divorces.
Generally speaking, New York and Texas law recognize two types of property: community property and separate property. Community property includes all property and debts acquired or incurred during the marriage. Problems frequently arise when the parties disagree on the accrued value of a home or a business. Equally problematic is the determination of a spouse’s contribution to the rise and success of a business during marriage.
What constitutes separate property? When significant assets are in dispute, the question of separate property becomes an important one. Is the business that I formed before marriage separate property? What is the relevance that the spouses co-mingled all income during marriage? Is my trust safe? Will our prenuptial agreement be enforceable?
