Dallas Complex Property Division Attorney

Our Financial Experience Makes the Difference

In the majority of high-asset divorces, the couple's financial holdings and marital estate are usually quite complex. With sophisticated accounts and businesses as part of the community property, the tax consequences of property division become extremely important. When you have significant assets to protect, you can trust the experience of Bruce Turner. He is a business-oriented attorney with 35 years of experience and a master's degree in tax law.

Dividing the marital estate in high-asset divorce cases is a complicated task that requires the skill of experienced attorneys. At Bennett, Weston, LaJone & Turner, P.C., our attorneys have experience with business and corporate law. We understand the importance of accurate valuation and maximizing your assets by structuring the division of property according to each party's tax liability.

Marital Asset Distribution

The marital estate will be divided according to Texas community property law. We can help you determine which assets and debts are marital property, which are separate and which are sole management community property. Assets that may be divided include:

  • Real estate holdings
  • Vehicles, jewelry, art and high-end furnishings
  • Insurance
  • Investments

The marital debts must also be divided during property division. This may include taxes, mortgages, other loans, credit card balances and any judgments against both of you.

Our attorneys regularly advise clients who own businesses as part of a marital estate. We know the tax consequences of each business entity; we also understand the dissolution of businesses and their stocks. We work closely with forensic accountants who can accurately value a business or review an existing valuation for businesses and investments such as:

  • Privately and publicly held companies
  • Professional practices
  • Stock options and portfolios
  • Oil and gas rights and royalties
  • Deferred compensation plans
  • Retirement plans, IRAs and 401(k)s

Once your marital business interests are valued, we will begin pursuing a property settlement agreement that is in your best interest. If necessary, we will take your case to trial to protect your rights.
