When Property Division Is A Complex Matter

Dividing assets in a divorce may be straightforward when those assets are basic, perhaps including a house, cars, bank accounts and standard retirement accounts. However, property division gets more complex with more complicated asset portfolios, perhaps including:

  • High-dollar assets
  • One or more professional practices
  • Business assets
  • Investments such as stocks and bonds
  • Commercial real estate; residential rental properties
  • IRAs
  • Annuities
  • Health savings accounts
  • Anticipated deferred income such as commissions and executive bonuses
  • Property owned jointly with business partners or extended family members
  • Timeshares and other nonconventional real estate assets and liabilities
  • Real estate that was damaged in a hurricane, not yet rehabilitated for resale but with a potential to be worth much more than it could sell for presently
  • Considerable debts
  • Oil drilling rights and other mineral rights
  • Stock options
  • Life insurance policies with payout potential
  • Valuable collectibles
  • Livestock
  • Property in other countries

Arriving at a complete list of assets can take time. Obtaining reliable valuations can be costly and outcomes may be disputed by your spouse. Property division becomes more complex when spouses disagree on valuations or on which assets are marital assets. At Mingledorff Law in Houston, we have helped many Texas clients overcome family law challenges such as these.
