Houston Family Law Lawyers Assisting With Asset Valuation

Retirement accounts such as IRAs, pensions and 401(k)s are often a person's most valuable assets. Due to their high value, dividing these assets is often one of the biggest sources of contention in a divorce. In cases involving complex property division, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side.

At Short Carter Morris, LLP, we have extensive experience handling the most complex financial issues that arise during high net worth divorce. We help parties find creative solutions to the division of retirement accounts such as:

  • Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)
  • Pensions

  • Employee stock purchase plans
  • Deferred compensation plans

Southeast Texas Attorneys Familiar With IRA Division

In Texas, property that was acquired during marriage, including retirement accounts, is presumptively considered community property and thus can be subject to division during a divorce. Our Houston asset valuation attorneys will assist you in identifying, valuing and dividing these accounts. We frequently work with financial experts such as forensic accountants to aid us in valuing and dividing these assets properly.

Our attorneys will handle any necessary paperwork, including Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs) to ensure the smooth division of your retirement funds. We will answer any questions and address any concerns you may have about the community property division process.

As experienced negotiators, we have been successful helping our clients achieve their goals without the cost and stress of divorce litigation. However, if your case requires a trial, you can rest assured that our attorneys are fully prepared to represent your interests in the courtroom.
