Division of Property: What are Your Asset Rights?

The process of divorce doesn’t just impact you emotionally; there can also be a slew of financial implications to address. In the eyes of the law, a married couple is a single unit. When that unit makes the conscious choice to uncouple, the unraveling of assets and debts requires a great deal of examination and understanding. There may be very large assets that your ex-spouse doesn’t want to share with you to which you have a legal right. Our Laredo rights to assets lawyers can help you review the items you shared with your former partner in such a way that you better understand your rights and which assets you can claim by law.

Things to know about the division of property in Texas:

  • There’s no guarantee of a 50/50 split: The law allows for assets and debts to be split according to what’s considered “fair and just.” Depending on the circumstances, that might not reflect a 50/50 split between ex-spouses.
  • Inheritance and wages can be included as community property: It’s best not to assume your earnings will automatically be deemed separate property. The same for an item that you inherited from a family member. You may have to prove in court that these assets were in your possession before the marriage or demonstrate reasons they shouldn’t be shared in the divorce.

It’s best to avoid making any assumptions. The state of Texas is a community property state, which means that almost everything acquired during the marriage is considered to belong equally to both spouses. Therefore, you need to speak with a skilled attorney to understand where you stand and your options for maintaining as ideal a financial outlook as possible.
