Experienced Family Law Attorneys Seeking Fair and Equitable Resolutions
The division of property during a divorce is often a contested issue that can affect an individual's future financial stability. If you are going through a divorce, it is important that you have an experienced attorney representing your interests.
At The Powell Law Firm, our experienced divorce lawyers seek fair and equitable resolutions. We understand that the less money our clients spend on attorneys' fees and court costs, the more money they have for their families, which is why our divorce lawyers make every effort to minimize the financial and emotional cost of divorce.
Texas: A Community Property State
Texas is a community property state. Generally, community property includes all property generated during the marriage, with some exceptions, including gifts and inheritances. After the court determines what is community property and what is separate property, it divides the community property between the parties. In a community property state, both sides are entitled to a fair distribution of all community property.
Separate property includes assets that were gained before the marriage, as well as gifts and inheritances. With few exceptions, all of a family's community property will be divided by the court in a fair and equitable manner. Many divorcing individuals argue that their spouses did not work or that their spouses never cared for the children. Such arguments do not work in Texas. Texas focuses on what is fair and equitable, not who worked and who watched the children.
