Did you know that, in Texas, everything you own and owe at the end of a marriage is presumed to be community property and subject to division between the parties upon divorce? Or that, regardless of where that community property came from the presumption is that it will be divided equally between you and your spouse at the end of the marriage?
Despite these presumptions the Court maintains the ability to find that assets are your separate property and not part of the community property estate. The Court can also find that it is fair and equitable to award you more than your spouse based on a number of factors. To ensure that you receive a fair and equitable portion of your estate and to ensure your financial security you need competent and dedicated counsel to guide you through the divorce process.
