Texas is a community property state, which means that everything that is bought with marital money during the lifetime of the marriage is subject to being divided by the court in a 'right and just' manner, though not necessarily equally. Our Board Certified Family Law Specialist and founding divorce attorney, Cheryl Alsandor, can help you figure out what assets are subject to marital estate division under these laws and what assets are still your 'sole property' and not subject to division.
For instance, property purchased before the marriage will remain yours.
