Division of Property

Texas is a community property state. Property owned before your marriage or given to you as a gift are considered separate property, while assets acquired during your marriage are presumed to be community property and will be divided in a "just and right" division, using fair and equitable guidelines. We will review your property to determine its classification. We also provide extensive asset division guidance for individuals as well as those involved in family businesses.

Our extensive representation extends to partnerships, family corporations and generic family businesses. Our legal team will consult with forensic accountants and other experts to:

  • Trace assets
  • Value the business
  • Evaluate inventory
  • Determine proper division

Spousal Maintenance — Alimony

We are committed to protecting our clients' best interests at every stage of their divorce. State law places strict regulations on "spousal maintenance," better known as alimony in other states. We understand the financial hardships associated with divorce. We represent clients facing either side of the issue — those pursuing alimony and those obligated to pay support. We evaluate every aspect of your unique situation, including Social Security issues, to provide guidance tailored to your needs.

Typical maintenance in Texas is three years for marriages lasting 10 years or longer. Certain circumstances affect alimony, including mental and physical handicaps. It is important to discuss your issues with a qualified divorce attorney.
