Corpus Christi Property Division Attorney

Texas Law Firm Helping People with Property Division and Related Matters

Spouses who are filing for divorce will have to deal with numerous pressing issues, like the division of their property. Property refers to things like spouses' homes, cars, savings, material assets and also debts.

In the state of Texas, property division will be decided upon one of two ways. First, property division may be mutually agreed upon by spouses. In this type of situation, spouses would sign a Marital Settlement Agreement which would specify how property is to be divided. Second, in cases where spouses cannot reach a mutual decision regarding the division of their property, the district court where their cases were filed would decide upon how their property is to be divided. A judge would issue a property division order and the judge's order would be included in the Decree of Divorce.

Property is divided differently in each state. The state of Texas is a community property state, which means that all possessions, money and debts incurred from the beginning of the marriage till the end of the marriage will be split equally in cases where spouses cannot reach a mutual agreement. However, any property that was acquired outside of the marriage, such as an inheritance, will be regarded as separate property and will not be counted as community property. This means that the rightful owner of the separate property will remain in possession of the property.

  • WE ARE FOREVER, THANKFUL!!!

    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”

  • MR. GOULD REALLY FOUGHT FOR ME AND MY FAMILIES RIGHTS AND THEY WON MY CASE.

    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”
