Texas Divorce Laws | Community Property

Texas

Texas is a \"Community Property\" state. Community property is all property that was acquired during the marriage. This property will be divided equally by the court, only if the parties are not able to come to an agreement. In a decree of divorce or annulment, the court shall order a division of the estate of the parties in a manner that the court deems just and right. The following are stipulations implemented by Texas divorce laws that decide division of property. (a) in addition to the division of the estate of the parties required by Section 7.001, in a decree of divorce or annulment the court shall order a division of the following real and personal property, wherever situated, in a manner that the court deems just and right, having due regard for the rights of each party and any children of the marriage: (1) property that was acquired by either spouse while domiciled in another state and that would have been community property if the spouse who acquired the property had been domiciled in this state at the time of the acquisition.
