Skilled Complex Divorce Attorneys Serving Clients in Travis County and the Greater Austin Area

Divorce is a difficult process, and unfortunately, not all divorces can be resolved amicably. These lawsuits often become even more complicated because of emotional strain, or because of issues such as child support, child custody and visitation arrangements, or unique or high-value assets. To ensure that your concerns in these tricky situations are addressed, it is important that you work with an experienced complex divorce attorney.

The attorneys at Powers Kerr & Rashidi, PLLC, have represented clients in complicated divorce cases in Travis County and throughout the Austin area for several decades combined. Our partners are among the small elite group of attorneys who are Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. We are skilled litigators and strong negotiators, and we have an in-depth understanding of the complexities involved in most divorce cases — as well as what it takes to secure favorable resolutions for our clients.

Common Issues with Complex Divorces

We handle a wide range of complex issues during divorce, including but not limited to:

  • High-Net-Worth Couples: When there are sizable assets involved in a divorce case, it is essential to secure appropriate asset valuations for purposes of determining a proper final division of property.
  • Small Businesses and Professional Practices: Ownership of or interest in business entities by divorcing parties adds an additional layer of complexity to divorce proceedings. Questions will arise regarding the real values of businesses, the levels of ongoing involvement for each spouse, the goals and intentions of non-party partners, and more. These issues must be handled properly to protect both the involved party interests and the continued success of the business.
  • Atypical Assets: Unique retirement plans, complex stock investments, foreign bank accounts, properties owned out of state or out of the country, and other unusual assets can be difficult to evaluate. So that you can have confidence in how these items are addressed during divorce, it is necessary for you to work with an attorney who has experience dealing with uncommon assets.
  • Claims for Reimbursement: In Texas, most property acquired during marriage is characterized as community property. But when community funds are used to enhance non-marital property (e.g., when improvements to a premarital home are made during the marriage), a party can request reimbursement to the community estate for the funds spent.
  • Child Relocations: If one parent wants to move out of state (or even outside of the parties' home county) with the children, he or she must petition the court for approval to relocate. If the other parent disapproves of the potential move, the case can become a highly contentious one, and quickly.
  • Complex Tax Issues: Divorces can frequently lead to unpleasant surprises for the former spouses when the time comes to file taxes. Especially when dealing with complex assets, understanding the tax implications of divorce is critical for parties hoping to leave the marriage in the best possible financial position.
