Family law issues require a knowledgeable, experienced Austin divorce attorney who can help you deal with your legal concerns in the best possible way. Divorce is the most common reason people consult a family lawyer. And it is by far the most challenging.


Divorces in which a couple has a high net worth can be incredibly complex, involving a wide variety of issues that can be difficult to resolve. Bill Powers provides experienced representation in these matters, working to help his clients understand the issues involved in dividing property with a high value, such as real estate property, stock portfolios, vehicles, boats, aircraft, jewelry, artwork, and expensive furnishings. He also helps address issues related to the division of large amounts of debt and uncovering hidden assets.
In addition to decisions about property division, high asset divorces often involve a wide variety of other concerns. If one or both spouses own a business or professional practice, proper business valuation is essential. Couples may also need to address issues related to the division of pensions and 401(k) accounts, and determining the correct amount of child support and spousal support can involve multiple complex factors. Bill will work with you to address these concerns and help you reach a positive outcome that protects your financial interests.
