Community Property Effective & Efficient Representation

Community Property in Texas Divorce Cases

Experienced Property Division Lawyers in Dallas

Items Deemed as Community Property are Divided EvenlyIn a Texas divorce, nearly all property is presumed to be community property. That is, ALL bank accounts, vehicles, retirement accounts, investments, etc. that are deemed “community property” are subject to being divided between the spouses in a divorce. This is true even if the property is held under just one spouse’s name. For example, if you and your spouse buy a house during the marriage, but only one name is on the deed, that house is still considered community property and can be divided in a divorce.

A spouse shouldn’t have to prove that some particular item is community property in divorce—conversely, there must be significant evidence to show that a specific asset is separate property. Still, disputes can arise. To resolve disputes and argue for fair division of community property, you need a trustworthy Dallas property division attorney.

Contact Garza Law Firm at (214) 225-4344 and get the strong, caring representation you need.

Determining Equitability

Community property may not be divided equally but under Texas law, it should be divided equitably—that is, fairly.

Several factors can impact equitability:

  • Fault or reason for the divorce
  • Earning power of each spouse
  • Child custody and childcare needs
  • Health and medical needs of each spouse
  • Contributions of each spouse to the family business or practice, if there is one

Where there is a business interest, retirement fund, pension, or intangible asset to be divided, matters can become complex. For effective and equitable property division, you need a legal firm that is familiar with such complex financial matters and also skilled in arguing for their clients’ needs.
