What is Property Division?

Property division is an element of divorce proceedings that involves the fair distribution of marital assets and debts between spouses. In Texas, the principle of community property governs this process. Community property includes all a6ssets and debts acquired during the marriage, except for separate property.

How is Property Divided in Texas?

In Texas, property division follows the community property system, which assumes that assets and debts acquired during the marriage are community property and are typically divided equally between spouses. However, Texas law also recognizes separate property, which includes:

  • Property acquired by one spouse before the marriage.
  • Property received as a gift or inheritance by one spouse during the marriage provided it was intended to be separate property.
  • Personal injury awards acquired by one spouse during the marriage (excluding compensation for lost earning capacity).
  • Property specifically specified as separate property in a valid prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

While community property is generally divided equally, separate property remains the sole possession of the spouse who owns it. Determining the character of each asset and debt during the property division process can be complex, often necessitating professional legal assistance.

Property Division Process in Texas

The property division process in Texas involves several key steps:

  • Identifying and Characterizing Assets and Debts: A key first step is to identify all assets and debts that are part of the marital estate. Our experienced attorneys will assist you in categorizing each asset and debt as either community or separate property.
  • Valuing Assets: To ensure a fair division, valuing all community property accurately is crucial. This may include real estate, investments, retirement accounts, businesses, and personal property.
  • Negotiation and Settlement: Our attorneys will work diligently to negotiate a fair settlement. We aim to reach an agreement that meets your needs and is in your best interests.
  • Trial: Our team is prepared to represent your interests in court if an amicable settlement cannot be reached through negotiation or mediation. Our experienced litigators will present a compelling case to secure a favorable outcome.
  • Enforcement and Compliance: Once a property division order is in place, we will ensure that all parties comply with the terms of the agreement or court order. We can take legal action to enforce the division of assets and debts if necessary.
