Assert Your Financial Interests When Dividing Property
One of the thornier logistical aspects of divorce is the need to divide property between spouses who have shared assets and finances for years. By working with experienced lawyers, you can ensure that you end up with your fair share of the marital property, even in situations where an asset’s value is not easily known or situations where an asset cannot be easily divided.
Unlike most states, Texas is a “community property” state. That means that all marital property jointly owned by a married couple is presumed under the law to be owned 50-50 between both spouses. In the event of a divorce, this becomes a guiding principle in the process of property division. (Other states consider a variety of factors such as relative income in order to achieve “equitable distribution.”)
At the Law Offices of Mari Garza and Lynn Peach, PLLC, we will stand up for your property rights and work to ensure that you land on solid financial footing at the conclusion of your divorce.
