How is Property Divided in Texas?
Texas is a community property state, which means that any property obtained by the parties (with some exceptions) during the marriage must be shared equitably between the partners. If you wish to exclude some property from distribution, they will need to prove that the property was owned separately from the marital assets, or that you inherited the property, or that the money or property was given to you as a result of pain and suffering through a lawsuit. Identifying separate property can be a complicated process for any marriage — particularly for long-term marriages. Our firm is adept at handling complex property division as well as more simple matters.
Judy Leecraft, Joe Newberry, and their legal staff are proficient in tracing assets to prove original and continuing separate ownership. No matter how complex your property division will be, they are prepared to help you reach a fair and equitable settlement.
