How Property Division Works in Texasproperty division lawyer shaking hands with client

Texas is a community property state, which means that all assets that are acquired while you are married will be subject to division. Unfortunately, in some cases, distinguishing between separate and community property can be difficult. You or your spouse may have forgotten what items were purchased when.

Any property you had before you were married or was given to you as a gift during the marriage is exempt (separate property). You and your spouse can decide how you will split up your property or sell your belongings to liquidate your assets. Otherwise, the property division property will be handled by a judge.

When drafting a property division agreement, the judge may consider:

  • The financial needs of each spouse
  • How long you and your spouse were married
  • Any terms set in your prenuptial agreement
  • Each spouse's earning abilities or income

Your Options to Divide Debt

The type and amount of debts that couples have, the size of their estates, and their own personal decisions all play a role in deciding how debt is divided in divorce. This is because couples can have different options for dealing with debts and liabilities, either individually or jointly.

Options to address debt include:

  • Prior to finalizing the divorce, spouses can sell property to remove or minimize debt.

  • Taking on more debt in return for a bigger, disproportionate share of marital properties.

  • To compensate for a partner earning a greater share of the debt, larger spousal support awards may be negotiated.

  • Both parties agree to take an equal share of any debts in a property division agreement.
