Our Bryan Property Division Services

Texas is a “community property” state, which means that certain assets and debts that you acquire during your marriage belong equally to both you and your spouse. If you decide to end your marriage, you will have to come up with a plan for who gets what.

Other property and debts, however, are considered “separate property,” which means they belong to either you or your spouse alone. You will not be asked to give up any separate property in your divorce.

But the challenge comes in determining what counts as community property and what counts as separate property.

In general, all income and big purchases made during the marriage tend to be considered community property. In contrast, separate property mostly includes things that you owned before the marriage, things you acquired as a gift, and anything that you and your spouse agree belongs to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does property division work in Texas divorces?

Texas follows community property laws, meaning assets and debts acquired during the marriage are typically divided between spouses, while separate property remains with its respective owner.

What qualifies as community property versus separate property?

Community property includes income, real estate, vehicles, and retirement accounts acquired during the marriage. Separate property encompasses assets owned before marriage, gifts, inheritances, and property agreed upon as separate by both spouses.

How does the court make property division decisions when spouses cannot agree?

When spouses cannot agree, a judge will review the facts to determine a fair distribution of assets. Judges typically consider various factors including each spouse’s age, health, earning capacity, education, custody arrangements, separate property ownership, and fault in the divorce, if any.

Will all community property be split 50/50?

Just because certain assets are determined to be “community property” doesn’t mean they have to be divided 50/50. A judge will take the factors described above into consideration to make a fair determination of how the assets should be distributed.

Can property division be settled outside of court?

Yes, property division can be settled outside of court through negotiation facilitated by attorneys, or third-party mediators, to reach an agreement that satisfies both spouses’ needs and preferences.
