Other than child custody and visitation, property and finances are the issues most likely to cause substantial conflict in a divorce. Whether you have extremely valuable assets or modest property and debts to divide, your financial state in the aftermath could well depend on your attorney's knowledge and diligence.

Now Is The Time To Protect Your Financial Interests

Many people have heard that Texas is a community property state — and it is common to mistakenly believe that this means a "50-50 split" is always the outcome of divorce. Such assumptions about Texas family law are dangerous. In reality, certain property may be awarded to one spouse alone, many assets held in one person's name only are subject to division, and various actions may be taken to achieve fair and equitable property division in the eyes of the court.
