Is Texas a 50/50 Divorce State?
No, Texas is not a 50/50 divorce state. Instead, the court will divide
property in Texas according to "just and right." This means
that the court will consider all of the factors involved in the case,
including the length of the marriage, the contributions of each spouse
to the relationship, and the needs of any children. Therefore, the court
may award one spouse more property than the other, but it is also possible
to award each spouse an equal share of the property.
The same is valid for child custody. The court will award custody to the
parent it believes is in the child's best interests. This means that
the court will consider all of the factors involved in the case, including
the child's wishes, the parenting abilities of each parent, and the
stability of each parent's home. The court may award one sole parent
custody of the child, but it is also possible that the court will award
joint custody to both parents.
