What Could I Lose In My Divorce?

As you and your spouse begin the process of divorce, it may feel like a time of uncertainty. One of the sources of that uncertainty is the division of marital property. You worry about who will end up with your home, your car, your 401(k) or other prized possessions.

When you hire The Law Office of Jose Molina, PLLC, you don't have to feel uncertain as to whether your attorney is fighting for you. You can rely on us to listen to your goals and determine the best strategy for the division of your assets (as well as any debt) as you divorce.

Texas law considers marital assets community property. This means that whatever items and property were purchased or received during the marriage belong to both partners. However, that does not necessarily mean that a judge will split your assets 50/50. In Texas, rather, assets and debt are divided equitably. Basically, a judge can determine whatever he or she believes is an equitable distribution of marital assets.

What Is Considered Separate Property?

Some assets and property are protected from inclusion in marital property. Here's a rundown of what can qualify as separate property:

  • Assets or property inherited by one spouse and not the other
  • Something owned before you were married that also didn't belong to your spouse
  • A gift given to one of you during the marriage
