Equal Versus Equitable
Since property issues are not always exactly equal, we instead seek “equitable” property division in Texas. Family courts will strive to establish agreements that fairly divide assets and debts so parties can walk away with some financial stability.
Creative Strategies And Reality-Based Representation
At Meredith Clark Law, we encourage our clients to work through these issues in a pragmatic manner. Despite the contentious nature of property disputes, it is often in an individual’s best interests to avoid taking matters to court, where decisions will be made by a judge who is not as well-versed in your own personal goals and financial challenges.
Attorney Meredith Clark’s comfort and confidence in the courtroom stems from her background in national and international litigation. She is well-equipped to match other long-standing big law firms because she has personally handled those kinds of sophisticated cases.
Through this experience, she has seen first-hand how people often walk away with a more satisfying property division agreement when they negotiate matters on their own. By informing our clients of how the court will likely rule and understand when it is appropriate to push for more, we can ultimately guide them toward the most favorable result possible.
