Property Division Laws in Texas
In Texas, community property means assets either spouse obtains when they are married, while separate property means anything one spouse owned before marriage, inherited property belonging to one spouse, gifts belonging to one spouse, and personal injury damages suffered by one spouse (except for lost wages).
When considering your property, you shouldn’t only look to your home or car and assume they will be evenly dispersed following a divorce. Anything you acquired over the course of your marriage is fair game, so you have to consider many things, such as:
Real property and homes
Media and entertainment devices
and much more.
Texas is an equitable-distribution state, meaning the division of the community property is fair and just. Each spouse’s income, financial contribution to the marriage, education, employability, custody of the children, and health are taken into consideration.
