Divorce in Collin County: Texas Law & Property
Texas is a community property state – but what does this mean to you in your divorce? The assets accrued during the years of your marriage belong to both spouses, including the family home, vehicles, family pets, works of art, bank accounts, some portion of retirement accounts, and other assets. When you divorce, this community property will be divided between the two partners. This process is geared towards an “equitable division” of the marital property. This property division can be resolved in many ways depending on the unique circumstances of your divorce.
When You Need to File for Divorce in Texas
The division of your marital assets will impact you for years, and managing the process correctly is of great importance to your quality of life. You can trust Cross Family Law, PLLC to ensure every asset is valued correctly, including separate property such as that which you owned before the marriage, inheritances, or gifts that were for you alone.
How the Court Comes to a Decision
When a divorce trial is necessary, you need a skilled litigator to protect your interests. The court evaluates several issues when coming to a decision, including but not limited to:
- Earning power of each party
- Health issues affecting one or both parties, or children
- The education level of each spouse
- Which parent has been the primary caregiver for the children
- The best interests of the children
- Issues such as drug or alcohol addiction
- Acts of domestic violence in the household
