Knowledgeable Representation in Complex Property Issues
In a Texas divorce, marital property is subject to a "just and right division," which does not necessarily mean that your property will be divided 50/50. The courts consider a variety of factors when dividing property, including income and child custody.
Located in Spring, Mrs. Perez will help you confront a wide range of property issues, including:
- Business valuation and division
- Division of retirement accounts and pension plans, including the complex Houston Fire Department and Houston Police Department pension and DROP Plans
- Hidden assets and asset tracing
- Division of real estate
- Division of stocks, bonds and mutual funds
- Community vs. separate property disputes and characterization
When you first meet with Amy, she will review your financial documents and discuss your legal goals at length. Then, she will develop a plan to help you achieve your goals, which may involve the use of financial experts such as forensic accountants, asset tracers and other expert witnesses. As a skilled negotiator and litigator, you can rely on Amy for experienced representation whether you are able to negotiate a fair settlement or it is necessary to go to trial.
When you work with Amy, you will never have to wonder what is going on with your case. The firm will keep you informed through all aspects of your case, keeping you posted on any new developments as they arise.
