Adept Legal Representation: Helping You Find The Property Boundaries In Your Divorce

Property division in Texas may seem straightforward: community property gets divided and separate property stays with the party who owns it.

However, the state of Texas does not allocate property this easily. When it comes to splitting community property, a court will divide it "in a just and right manner," which might be some division other than 50-50 like many people would expect. Further, separate property is often commingled when parties enter a divorce.

Determining the total amount of assets — as well as debts — involved requires adept legal representation.
