The Latest With Lewis – April 2023

In the past month, the KLL Team has celebrated 3 fun events together: The Dallas Family Law Section Bench Bar, the Genesis Young Leaders Masquerade Ball, and Judge Adkins’s Birthday Celebration at the KLL Office!

The Dallas Family Law Section Bar is a yearly continuing legal education conference for both attorneys and paralegals to receive training over various family law topics. The presentations cover many subjects such as how to avoid mistakes and bias, how to best keep the children of a divorce in mind, and so much more! This year’s conference had a theme of 007: Secret Service Training. Our Team had a blast at the event and took great pleasure in continuing their legal education!

The Genesis Young Leaders Masquerade Ball is a yearly fundraiser to raise capital for Genesis, a Women’s Shelter and Support Center, for those who have been victims of domestic violence. Genesis puts on the Masquerade Ball to help support nearly 1,300 women and children who turn to Genesis for help each year. The KLL attorneys had a great time supporting and celebrating this cause. This year’s Genesis Young Leaders Masquerade Ball raised over $131,000.00 for the Genesis Women’s Shelter and Support Center.

Finally, it was our honor to host a birthday reception at the KLL Office for the newly elected Honorable LaDeitra Adkins, the new District Judge of the 303rd Judicial District Court of Dallas County, Texas!

Likewise, you may have an easier time focusing on the positive elements of your parenting rather than the negative aspects of your relationship.

Do You Suspect Asset Hiding?

When going through divorce, you will have to deal with asset division. This is often one of the biggest potential hurdles in divorce, especially for childless couples who do not have to worry about custody or visitation.

Some spouses make it even harder, too. They do this by trying to hide assets, which can create a lot of problems.
– Digital Asset Hiding: CNBC discusses ways that a spouse may attempt to hide assets in divorce. First, they may go the digital route. This is a relatively new method that relies on an old-school type of asset hiding. The spouse will purchase bitcoin or another type of cryptocurrency in bulk. They have the intention of selling their stocks after the divorce gets finalized, thus getting all of that money back without having to share any of it.
