Our Practice

Attorney Tad Nelson provides clients throughout Galveston County and the Houston metro area with strong and effective legal representation in all aspects of marital property division, including:

  • Division of retirement and investment accounts
  • Division of pension plans and other employee benefits
  • Business valuations
  • Qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs)
  • Identifying and locating hidden assets

What Doesn’t Count as Community Property?

If you brought assets or property into the marriage (a home, an investment account, a business, etc.) they will not be considered community property. Likewise, if you received an inheritance, a bequest, or personal gifts during the marriage, those will also be considered yours and yours alone. Where this can become complicated is when assets are brought into the marriage, sold, and the proceeds become co-mingled in the “marriage pot.” The same scenario also applies to money received as part of an inheritance.

Our firm works with financial specialists and accountants to sort out these complex divorce issues and also to identify and locate any marital assets that have been hidden or not yet taken into consideration.
