Protect All Of Your Hard-Earned Property In Your Divorce
There are many types of property you must think about when going through a divorce. Certain types that we can help you protect include:
- Cars, trucks and other vehicles
- Your home and vacation properties
- Jewelry and watches
- Retirement accounts, IRAs and 401(k)s
- Bank accounts
- Your company
- Investments, including stocks
- Life insurance policies
Certain things cannot be divided in your divorce, including things you inherited, were gifted and brought into the marriage and maintained in your own name. There are other exempt assets, too, and our team will walk you through the best strategies to protect your best interests.
How Do Community Property Laws Affect My Assets?
According to Texas law, anything bought or acquired during the marriage is community property. This is true even if you only put one person’s name on the title and only one person actually paid for the asset. Even commingling bank accounts can make all of the money community property.
These laws become complex, making it essential to discuss your asset protection options with a skilled divorce lawyer as soon as possible. At Scott M. Brown & Associates, we will work directly with you to help you achieve your goals. We use all kinds of methods to trace property back to its source to properly characterize it as separate property that is not subject to division.
