Separate property in Texas must be proven by Clear and Convincing evidence, otherwise, the asset defaults to community property.
Usually this comes in the form of a tracing of funds and other assets through time. Tracing is an art based on the laws of Texas, and the accounting knowledge of the professional. Only the most experienced CPAs are proven to be successful in this endeavor.
Larry Bradford CPA has such experience. See his Curriculum Vitae. With over 400 trial court experiences in both State and Federal courts, along with countless depositions and mediation presentations, Mr. Bradford has proven to be critical in the defense of separate property of all kinds.
