Texas Property Distribution Attorney

Under Texas law, property division may be disproportionate between the spouses in a fault-based divorce, in situations where one spouse committed adultery or fraud on the marriage, or was cruel to or abandoned the other spouse.

Our Plano divorce attorneys can also assist with no-fault divorce, called "insupportable" in Texas. Even in situations where neither party is at fault for the divorce, division of property can be skewed for any number of reasons, including:

  • Disparity of earning power of the spouses and their ability to support themselves, including age, education, business opportunities and future employability of each spouse
  • One spouse's waste of marital assets
  • Health of the spouses
  • Which spouse was granted custody of the children
  • Debt and liabilities
  • The effort of each spouse in the creation of marital property, or in its increase of value
  • Tax consequences of the division of property

The application of Texas law to your specific circumstances can be complicated. We can help.
