Divorce Attorneys Helping Families in Dallas, Rockwall, and Collin County With Marital Property Division
At The Blacknall Firm, we understand that divorce can be a challenging and emotional process, especially when it comes to dividing property. If you are going through a divorce in Texas, it is important to understand the laws regarding property division.
Community Property vs. Separate Property
In Texas, property is divided into two categories: community property and separate property.
Community property includes property that was acquired during the marriage, with a few exceptions, such as gifts and inheritances. Community property is subject to division in a divorce.
Separate property includes property that was owned by one spouse before the marriage or was acquired during the marriage by gift or inheritance. Separate property is not subject to division in a divorce.
Division of Property
In Texas, community property is divided in a “just and right” manner. This means that the court will divide the property in a way that is fair and equitable based on the specific circumstances of the case.
Factors that the court may consider when dividing property include:
- The length of the marriage
- The age and health of each spouse
- The earning capacity and income of each spouse
- The education and employability of each spouse
- The debts and liabilities of each spouse
- The age of the children
- The primary conservator of the children
It is important to work with an experienced family law attorney who can help you protect your assets and ensure that your property is divided in a fair and equitable manner.
