Assertive Approach to Handling Property Division In a Houston Divorce

Child custody, visitation and support are usually major concerns for divorcing parties. Property division is often next in line—particularly if a primary residence, inheritance or pension is involved.

In Texas, marital property is categorized as community property, or property accumulated during a marriage. Traditionally, community property and debt are divided evenly based on the value of each. If assets were acquired prior to marriage, they are considered separate and will stay with the original owner.

Each instance, however, is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Individuals pursuing a divorce should seek the help of a lawyer who can answer specific questions pertaining to these matters.
