Houston Complex Marital Estate Lawyer
Houston Divorce Lawyers: Community Property Division
A complex marital estate is one in which there may be a combination of substantial separate property and community property. Determining the exact nature, origin and value of real property, business and other assets is crucial in arriving at a fair and just property division settlement. In many high-value marital estates, this process is made more complicated by a variety of issues, including:
- Commingled separate and community property
- Substantial real estate purchased with a mixture of individual and marital assets
- Trusts and inheritances
- Family businesses, partnerships, sole proprietorships and other closely held business interests
- Stock options, pensions, 401(k) accounts, and other investment and retirement accounts
- Tax issues relating to the liquidation of any assets to be divided

In a complex marital estate, it can take the help of an accomplished divorce lawyer to conduct the necessary research, documentation and valuation to prove that a piece of property or financial asset should or should not be divided in a divorce.
There are three steps to resolving issues of separate and community property in a complex marital estate:
- Identify all the separate and community assets and property involved, including previously undisclosed or hidden assets, if any.
- Conduct a thorough investigation to prove whether an asset is community property, separate property or a mixture of the two.
- Establish an accurate valuation of all the property and assets that may be subject to division (this includes a business valuation).
