Applying community property laws to a complex marital estate–including real estate, mineral interests, business entities, or retirement assets–requires an experienced attorney. What happens when one spouse owns the marital residence at the start of a long marriage? If the other spouse is demanding to just, “split the equity in the house” he or she might be getting much more or much less than they deserve. What happens when the most significant asset is a jointly owned business, but that business has no value if it must be sold? Divorcing spouses can destroy the value of their business if advised by an inexperienced attorney.

I can draft QDROs to divide retirement accounts so you get your fair share of community income. I can help you to evaluate your business’ value and transition it into post-divorce management.
