property division Archives

Beware! Texas property division may not mean a 50-50 split

Most American states use the equitable distribution system to address property division in a divorce. This means that the court divides a couple's property in a way that it deems fair and equitable. Texas is one of only nine states that use the community property system to settle marital assets.

How does property division work in Texas?

If you and your spouse have decided to divorce, it is a good idea to seek answers to your property questions before your case proceeds. Property division is one of the most complicated matters a divorcing couple will face, and if the breakup is contentious, a fair balance is even more elusive. The first thing you need to know is that property division falls under Texas community property law.

Receive child support? You can pay for these costs

Child support payments are awarded in many divorces, and the specifics about how much the support payments will be for and for how long they will last varies wildly from case to case. There are many factors that go into determining how much child support should be awarded, including the age of the child, the educational and medical needs of the child, and the financial situations and obligations of the spouses involved.
