Asset Division in Texas

Our Spring Divorce Attorney Can Guide You

Texas is considered a community property state, which means that the total amount of income earned and any property that was acquired during the marriage is community property and therefore belongs to both spouses. When dividing assets and property in a divorce, everything earned during the marriage will be divided among the two spouses.

The division of property and assets is often extremely complex without proper guidance from an experienced Spring divorce lawyer. At the Law Office of Bryan Fagan, our firm can navigate this process on your behalf and ensure that you capably seek the assets you deserve during your divorce.

How will property be divided?

A judge will divide the property and assets in a way that is considered “just and right.” Note that this does not necessarily mean “equal.” Debts are also looked at as community property, meaning any debts inherited during the marriage will be divided between the spouses, as well. Anything earned before the marriage is considered “separate property,” and belongs to the spouse who acquired it.

Before diving the community property, a judge will consider the following factors:

  • Fault in the breakup
  • Disparity of earning power
  • Each spouse’s health
  • Who has custody of the children
