How Texas Courts Divide Assets
For many couples, distributing assets and property is a complicated matter. Couples have the option to reach their own settlement outside of court, or they can go to trial and rely on a judge’s decision. Texas is a community property state, which means that our courts divide all marital assets 50-50 between spouses.
Cane Law Firm can often help our clients reach a settlement outside of court. However, we will also represent you at trial to help you obtain a favorable verdict.
What About Spousal Maintenance?
Spousal maintenance ‒ also called alimony ‒ plays a role in many divorce arrangements. Texas does not have a formula for determining the amount of support. The court considers factors such as:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse’s financial needs
- Each spouse’s contribution to the marital assets
- Each spouse’s ability to earn an income
- Whether one spouse dissipated marital assets
Cane Law Firm can help you determine the amount of support you need to receive or pay. Whether you are the supporting or the dependent spouse, we will strive for the best outcome available to you.
