Community Property vs. Separate Property

Characterization of assets is a common bone of contention in marital property division. We make sure that all jointly held property that should be considered part of the estate is on the table, while protecting separate assets of our clients.

We advise clients regarding reimbursement and economic contribution claims, and particularly the complex issues involving appreciation of retirement funds and other assets during the marriage (and after divorce). Similarly, we sort out issues relating to debts that pre-exist the marriage, and liabilities incurred or assets acquired without the other spouse's knowledge.

Pfister, Borserine & Associates uses outside experts as necessary to support the client's characterization of assets and ensure an equitable division. We are adept at valuations of:

  • The marital homestead
  • Other real estate (rental property, vacation homes, timeshares)
  • Closely held corporations
  • Securities, stock options, and deferred compensation
  • QDROs (401(k)), IRA, pension)
  • Possessions
  • Debts

We also are attuned to divorce asset protection strategies commonly employed to skirt the law, and use sophisticated means to identify hidden assets.

Using the most up-to-date rulings regarding community property in Texas, we propose a fair settlement of marital property (not necessarily 50/50). If an acceptable division cannot be negotiated, our attorneys are thoroughly prepared and fully equipped to litigate the matter.

Spousal Maintenance

Spousal support (alimony) is granted only rarely and usually not beyond three years, regardless of the length of the marriage or disparity in incomes. Pfister, Borserine & Associates can address monthly rehabilitative maintenance in negotiations, or negotiate a lump sum buyout in the divorce settlement.

Experience in Marital Property Rights

John J. Pfister, Jr. is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, with more than 15 years of experience. Charity Borserine also extends more than 15 years of experience in divorce law.
