Dallas Property Division Attorneys
Understanding Your Rights during Divorce
As a community property state, Texas law mandates that almost all property acquired during a marriage be divided between the spouses during a divorce. However, the courts may not rule a 50/50 split. Factors such as earning power, health needs, and child custody can impact the court’s decision on what property goes to whom.
At Garza Law Firm, we understand that you may be worried about your future during a divorce. Our divorce attorneys can help ensure your rights are protected and your future is secured by advocating for a fair distribution of your marital assets. Our priority is protecting your best interests.

How Are Assets Distributed in Divorce?
Unless a piece of property was purchased before the marriage, gifted solely to one spouse, or inherited by one spouse, all property owned by a couple will be considered for division in a divorce.
The court’s decision will include:
- Valuable property, such as art, jewelry, or collectibles
- Vehicles, including boats, farm equipment, and cars
- Homes or other real estate
- Stocks, investments, or mutual funds
- 401(k)s, pensions, or other retirement funding
- Mortgages or other loans
Under Texas’s community property laws, debts incurred during the marriage—including credit card debt, mortgages, or student loan debt—are owed by both spouses even if the loan was made in one person’s name. However, debt incurred before a marriage is typically the responsibility of one spouse alone.
