Property Division And Spousal Support In High Net Worth Divorce
In the state of Texas, property division in a divorce requires that community or marital property be divided equitably between both parties. When there are significant resources, property and assets that have to be divided in a divorce, tensions can rise. The value of assets can be contested and disagreements can develop over what’s fair.

They have resolved all types of complex cases involving financial issues, assets and wealth.

Child Custody And Support In Texas
In the state of Texas, the family courts will always consider child custody matters from the perspective of what is in the best interests of the child. Parents are usually expected to share physical custody, called conservatorship in Texas, and have joint legal custody, where both parents are involved in making decisions on behalf of the child. Courts will typically designate a custodial and a non-custodial parent and establish a visitation or parenting time schedule for the children. However, if there are specific circumstances the court may award sole physical or legal custody to one parent or the other if it protects the best interest of the child.
We help clients with:
- Negotiating and establishing child custody
- Establishing visitation schedules
- Requesting a modification of a visitation schedule
- Establishing child support based on child custody
- Seeking modifications of child support
- Requesting a relocation in a post-decree modification
Child support is typically calculated with guidelines established in the Texas Family Code. Either party can request modifications to deviate from the guidelines. We help parents negotiate child support and seek post-decree modifications of child support in the event financial circumstances change significantly.
