Community Property Laws In Texas
Texas is a community property state, which means any property acquired prior to marriage is considered separate property, while anything acquired during the course of marriage is considered community property. Only community property is divided in a divorce — sometimes unequally. This can create issues for couples with complex assets such as:
- Business holdings
- Medical practices
- Government pensions
- Military retirement accounts
- Stocks and stock options
- Intellectual property rights
- Real estate investments
At Prater, Ridley & Llamas - Attorneys at Law, our family lawyers will put more than 110 years of combined legal experience to work for you, carefully reviewing all your complex assets to make sure they are properly valued and accounted for before heading into the process of dividing property.
