How Is Property Divided in Texas?

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, stocks, businesses, retirement, and more.

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
