This case stands for the proposition that a party (in this case, the husband) can do his own tracing of financial accounts to prove how much is separate property. In this case, the husband was an attorney and a CPA. There was no objection to his qualifications made to the trial court. The court of appeals reviewed some very complex financial account tracing and approved what the husband calculated. It certainly seems logical that if we allow a party to testify about the value of his house without being a real estate appraiser, that we should allow a party to testify about tracing as long as the methodology is explained and is proper. Richard v. Towery, 1st Court of Appeals, 01-11-00132-CV, April 18, 2013. Another case decided this month by the San Antonio Court of Appeals is another example of a party tracing (or trying to trace) his own separate property. Unfortunately, this is also a great example of how not to trace and what evidence is insufficient to prove separate property. Nalbach v. Nalbach, 4th Court of Appeals, 04-11-00802-CV, 4/17/2013.
