be a difficult task.

Division of Marital Property
Divorce in the state of Texas requires that couples divide their “community
property” in a way that is “just and right,” which does
not necessarily mean perfectly even. Community property is essentially
anything that is acquired during the marriage and therefore belongs to
both spouses. Any property that was acquired individually before the marriage
and belongs to each spouse separately is usually exempt from division
in this way.
Community property can include:
- Home furnishings
- Bank accounts
- Home equity
- Employment benefits
As you can see, not all community property is physical, and often times
these non-physical possessions are some of the most difficult to fairly
divide. This process may take a considerable amount of patience and knowledge
of the law to be able to navigate successfully. Make sure you are prepared
for your case by contacting a skilled attorney and having them assist
you throughout the process.
