As a community property state, Texas law states that whatever is acquired by either spouse during the marriage belongs to both spouses, regardless of who purchased the property or whose name is listed as the owner.
Some properties can be designated to one spouse, especially:
Any assets owned by a spouse before the marriage
Any assets that one spouse inherits in their own name
Any gifts received by only one spouse
Damages awards recovered in a personal injury case
All other assets are considered community property and a subject to the courts distribution.
Erica Rose and the attorneys at Rose Sanders Law will work closely with you to determine whether an asset is community or separate property. This preparation can have a significant impact on the overall distribution of assets during a divorce.
