In Texas, the standard for dividing property in a divorce is based on what is considered “just and right”. This means that the division of property will be determined on a case by case basis, taking into account the specific circumstances of the marriage.

Generally, the division of property is equal between the spouses, but it’s possible for one spouse to receive a greater portion of the community property if the court deems it necessary. There are various factors that are considered when determining if an unequal division is “just and right”, including each spouse’s earning potential, health, debts, education, and more.
