How Is Property Divided in Texas?

In Texas, the property division process is straightforward. The spouses are required to submit a property and debt disclosure form, listing all of their separate property and marital property. Marital property is property that was acquired during the marriage, and separate property is property that was owned before the marriage or property that was gifted to one spouse during the marriage. Once the property is divided, the spouses can decide how to divide up their debts as well.

Some of the factors a judge will take into consideration when dividing property include:

  • the duration of the marriage;
  • the age and health of the spouses;
  • the financial circumstances of each spouse;
  • the needs of the spouses and the children; and
  • any written agreements between the spouses.

How Is Property Valued?

The first step in dividing property is to value it. This can be a complicated process, and it is important to have an experienced lawyer by your side. The value of the property is determined by how it is classified. Some types of property, such as a 401(k), are not marital property, so the asset is not divided. However, other types of property could be classified as either marital property or separate property.

Some types of property that are considered marital property include:

  • property purchased with marital funds;
  • property that was acquired during the marriage;
  • property that was acquired with separate property during the marriage.

How Long Does a Property Division Case Take?

The length of a property division case varies widely. Some cases are settled out of court, while others require a trial. A lawyer can help you determine how best to proceed with your case.
