Complex Divorce Attorneys in Denton

Helping You Navigate Complicated Divorce Proceedings Skillfully

While some divorces are relatively straightforward, others are extremely complex. Notably, “simple” divorce matters are not always amicable; and “complicated” divorce proceedings are not always hotly contested. However, the practical reality is that complex divorce cases present more opportunities for disputed issues to arise and greater chances for differing opinions as to what is “fair.” Hiring a knowledgeable Denton complex divorce attorney is critical for you and your case.

If you are contemplating a divorce, or if you have been served with divorce papers, it is always advisable to hire competent legal representation as soon as possible. Seemingly-simple divorce matters often turn into complex and messy cases, and it is often a good idea to have a skilled advocate at your side from the very beginning.

Don’t take a chance that halfway through your case, you realize that your divorce lawyer is not equipped or experienced enough to handle matters with complex issues of law or fact (or both).

The Law Office of Gregory C. Goline is well-versed in the many nuances of Texas law governing divorce proceedings and related family law matters. Specifically, our legal team has several years of experience negotiating and mediating highly-complex divorce settlement agreements. Additionally, in cases where settling is not possible (for a number of possible reasons), we are more than ready, willing, and able to represent our clients’ interests in court.

We have significant experience litigating hundreds of complex divorce cases in courts throughout Denton and North Texas.

What Constitutes a “Complex” Divorce?

Please note that when we refer to a divorce case as “simple” or “complex,” we do NOT mean that any case is simple in terms of emotion and importance. Rather, in the legal community, classification of a divorce matter as “complex” simply means that the facts of the case may require the need for financial experts, child psychologists, specialized legal analysis, multiple hearings, etc.

There are many factors that may lead to complex divorce proceedings, including the following:

  • Significant marital assets: Large bank accounts, investment accounts, etc., multiple real properties, and other accounts and items of significant value.
  • Debts: Individual v. marital – i.e., who is responsible for repayment?
  • Business interests: Business ownership or interests (goodwill, intellectual property, investments, real estate, etc.).
  • Child custody disagreement: Disagreements as to best interests of the children; appointment of a neutral third party to conduct an investigation; allegations of acts and conduct detrimental to the children.
  • Income disputes: Disputes regarding the stated income of the other spouse (such as when a spouse is self-employed, and profits and losses can be manipulated); allegations of incomplete or missing income.
  • Future interests: Factual and legal disputes regarding the existence and nature of a spouse’s interests as a beneficiary of a trust, will, etc.
  • Allegations of improper conduct: Allegations that a spouse improperly moved, transferred, hid, or spent marital assets.
  • Disputed classifications of assets as marital or individual
  • Conflicting opinions regarding a spouse’s contributions to the marriage
  • Allegations of fault
  • Battling experts: Conflicting expert opinions regarding valuation, best interests of the children, etc.
  • Irreconcilable positions as to what constitutes a fair and equitable division of the marital assets (and debts), financial support, and/or parenting

Valuation, Division & What is Fair

Even the most complex divorce can be broken down into three basic components: 1) property division; 2) financial support (spousal and/or child); and 3) child custody/parenting.

All three of these areas must be resolved in some way or another before a divorce can be finalized. When parties cannot reach an agreement as to one or more of these issues, the case becomes more complicated.

For example, with respect to what constitutes a “fair” division of property, each and every asset and debt must be identified, valued, and divided. This is not always easy. The hiring of experts such as CPAs, forensic accountants, business valuation professionals, and others may be necessary.
