Dividing Property Equally and Fairly

How will property be divided?
A judge will divide the property and assets in a manner that is deemed “just and right.” It’s important to note that this does not always mean an equal division. Debts are also considered community property, which means any debts acquired during the marriage will be shared between the spouses. Anything earned before the marriage is considered “separate property” and belongs to the spouse who acquired it.
Before dividing the community property, a judge will take into account the following factors:
- Fault in the breakup
- Disparity of earning power
- Each spouse’s health
- Who has custody of the children
- Dividing Property in a Texas Divorce – The Just and Right Division
