Experienced Property Division and Family Law Lawyer

One of the most contentious issues in any divorce is the division of property or marital assets. Determining what is marital or community property and what is separate property can prove to be extremely confusing. Add emotional ties to the mix, and it can be a recipe for disaster. When faced with this difficult scenario, it is highly beneficial to retain the services of an experienced and skilled family law attorney.

At the Law Office of Tim W. Avery, in McKinney, Texas, we represent clients throughout Collin County, and the surrounding communities. For nearly 20 years, attorney Avery has helped hundreds of individuals, couples and families resolve their complex domestic relations issues. Contact us to learn more about how we can guide you through the divorce process toward a better tomorrow.

Equitable Division

Under Texas law, any assets or debts acquired by either spouse during the course of the marriage are considered jointly owned property (or community property and debts). In a divorce, these assets and debts are divided by the court in a manner that is considered "just and right." Please note, the court may consider a variety of factors in reaching its decision and the ultimate division of property among spouses may not necessarily be equal.

Common community/marital property includes:

  • Pensions and retirement accounts
  • Investments, stocks and bonds
  • Checking and saving bank accounts
  • Residential and commercial real estate
  • Credit card Debt, mortgages and other loans

In high-value divorces where couples have significant marital assets, our firm works with professionals in accounting and valuation to identify all assets and properly assess their worth.

Whenever possible, we will attempt to negotiate a fair property division agreement through mediation or negotiation. However, in the event discussions break down, attorney Avery will use his years of experience to protect your rights and best interests in court.
