Property Division: What You Need To Know
When it comes to divorce, each state has specific laws put in place that must be followed. Reuter Law Group, PC, can walk you through your options. We have worked with clients throughout Texas who need help in dividing their assets. Our goal is to get you everything you are entitled to.
What Is Considered Community Property?
As a community property state, anything acquired during your marriage is subject to division. That being said, that does not mean everything will be split 50/50. If an agreement cannot be reached outside of court, a judge will decide what they think is fair and equal between both parties. Anything that you acquired before your marriage is known as separate property. This is yours and yours alone. Your spouse does not have any rights to it.
While this may seem simple, that isn’t always the case. For example, perhaps you bought your house before you met your partner. You married, they moved in and stayed there throughout the duration of your relationship. They may feel entitled to a portion of the property. Perhaps you renovated the house and their money was used to do so. Who gets it then? This is where we can step in. As strong women, our firm understands how important it is to fight for what is rightfully yours.
