Texas Marital Property Issues
There are two major categories of property in the State of Texas: community property and separate property.
International Family Law
The rise of multinational corporations and more frequent international travel for work, education and other reasons has increased the number of families where the parents have different nationalities or at least basic family, social and language ties to different countries. If such a family breaks up, the spouses may each seek to return to where he or she considers home. This may lead to difficulties in enforcing the property, support and child custody provisions of the parties' divorce since the divorcing court in Texas does not have the same actual power over a person who is living outside the country as it does over a person it can order arrested by the local police. The Hague Convention is one answer to the problems aggravated by international mobility.

Testimonials

Thank you for protecting my interests and that of my children through the divorce process. I can’t thank you enough for your hard word, diligence and tenacity. You’re truly the best!

D.W.

Tom Raggio insisted that we handle the divorce in a dignified manner; that I would have to live with the consequences forever. His advice was always reasoned, measured and with a long-term perspective.

R.B., COO

Ken, thank you for taking such fine care of me in my divorce. You were right about everything! [My ex-husband] is closer to the children than ever – and [my children] are richer and happier for that.

M.N.

Ken Raggio came in after my collaborative divorce in Collin County was supposedly settled and took immediate steps to resolve our dispute without having to go to court. I am grateful for his quick, efficient, effective, and decisive actions.
