Property Division in Texas
Texas is a community property state. Property acquired during a marriage is typically community property. Certain exceptions exist, including property gained by inheritance during a marriage.
Separate property is any property acquired prior to marriage and limited types of property acquired during marriage (e.g. gifts, inheritance and certain proceeds from a spouse’s personal injury claim). Complications arise, however, when separate property is commingled with community property. When necessary, we have the ability to retain forensic accountants and other financial professionals to assist with these and other complex property division issues.
No-Fault Divorce and Fault-Based Divorce
In Texas, you may file for a no-fault divorce or a fault-based divorce. Since the existence of fault can have an impact on the division of the marital estate, it is critical that you receive sound advice and experienced representation from a highly qualified divorce lawyer.
