As a Dallas divorce attorney, I often see clients who are concerned about how their frequent flyer miles will be treated in the divorce process. I understand that these miles can have significant value and can be a source of stress for those going through a divorce.
In Texas, frequent flyer miles are treated the same way as any other property. This means that if the miles were obtained during the marriage, they are considered community property and are subject to division in the divorce.
The court will divide the frequent flyer miles in what it calls a “just and right division.” This simply means that in light of the total circumstances of the facts involved in the divorce, the court will divide the miles in a manner that it feels is fair.
It’s important to note that the court may consider the value of the frequent flyer miles, as well as other factors such as the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and any other assets that are being divided in the divorce.
As a divorce attorney, my goal is to help my clients navigate the legal process and ensure that their rights and interests are protected.
