Property Division in Texas
Unlike many states, property division is not automatically 50/50. The law requires that the court divide the property in a “just and fair” manner. This means that disproportionate divisions of assets (where one spouse gets more than half of the community property) are quite common in Texas. Additionally, not all property owned by the spouses is necessarily community property and certain kinds of property (most commonly property inherited or owned before marriage) can be deemed separate property if a fairly high standard of proof is met.
Property division is often one of the more complicated aspects of a divorce case and an experienced and effective divorce attorney can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.
