complex property division is is a big
00:07
piece of what i do every day
00:09
individuals that come from either
00:12
high assets high high earners
00:15
individuals that have
00:17
inheritances or trusts
00:20
or individuals that may got married
00:22
later in life that have a big what we
00:25
call separate estate
00:26
can have complex property issues within
00:29
their case and what i mean by that is
00:32
is the property community versus
00:33
separate do we need to trace the
00:35
property and where it
00:37
started what we call inception of title
00:40
like when did that property incept we
00:42
also have to look at
00:44
are there any reimbursement claims
00:47
against either the separate state or the
00:49
community estate
00:51
so what keeps them up at night and i
00:53
think what stresses
00:55
individuals out that are going through
00:56
that is you know it could be that they
00:59
built
01:00
up a big separate estate before they got
01:03
married and they’re they’re
01:05
in you know they want to protect that
01:07
and they want to ensure that they’re
01:08
getting
01:09
all of their separate property that
01:11
existed before the marriage at the
01:12
divorce in their name and so we often
01:15
have to
01:16
hire tracing experts or cpas to look
01:19
into
01:21
the different financial issues that
01:22
they’re dealing with and trace those
01:25
pieces of property and to ensure that we
01:28
can articulate to the court and we can
01:30
show
01:31
uh the other party uh what the
01:33
characterization of that property may be
