Texas Complex Property Division
In the state of Texas, property subject to divorce proceedings may be divided by the court by a means that is “just and right.” Although many people assume this to mean a 50/50 division, the court is not required to divide property on an equal basis. Considerations of income, ability to generate income, child custody, and marital fault may be considered by the court.
Having an experienced divorce lawyer familiar with Texas divorce laws and the procedures of local courts is important in any divorce. In cases involving complex property division issues, it is even more critical.
