Our full-service divorce practice can address all of your needs, including important family law matters such as child custody, child support, spousal maintenance and property division.
Property Division In Divorce
In Texas, property acquired during the course of a marriage is presumed to be community property and subject to division upon divorce. Certain property, such as gifts and inheritances, may be considered separate property, but generally speaking, the following types of property are subject to division provided they were acquired during the course of the marriage:
- Retirement assets such as 401(k)s, IRAs and pensions
- Jewelry, furniture and other personal possessions
- Oil and gas assets
- Business and professional practice assets
Debt is also divided upon divorce. If you are facing divorce, you want to make sure you are obtaining your fair share of community property while not taking on more debt than you are rightfully responsible for. Our divorce lawyers are well-versed in Texas community property laws and can protect your financial interests in these critical legal matters.
