Separate Property vs. Community Property in TX
Texas is one of only a few states which use the community property system.
- Typically, any property that was owned by one party before the marriage or purchased with separate funds during the marriage is not subject to property division.
- Any assets, income, wages, and salary acquired during the marriage are subject to division.
- This may include:
- Real estate
- Motor vehicles
- Retirement, and more.
Other Assets Subject to Division in Divorce
The following will also be subject to division:
- Property acquired by one spouse in exchange for other property which previously would have been classified as community property
- Property acquired by one spouse while they were living in another state, assuming the property is classified as community property in Texas
