Property and Asset Division

Dividing Marital Property in Texas

In Texas, property, assets, and debts are not automatically divided 50/50 — Texas law requires a just and equitable division of assets — when your marriage ends. The characterization of assets as community or separate property, the amount of assets involved and many other factors affect the final outcome of property division in a divorce. High-asset divorces are even more complex, as the nature and structure of the assets can complicate the valuation and division processes.
