Some of the issues that you will need to address include the division of property, assets and liabilities. If children are involved, you will need to come up with a parenting plan, which addresses child custody, child support and visitation. Because of these complicated issues it’s best to work with a Dallas family law attorney to assist you with your case.

Yes, Texas is a “community property” state. Assets and liabilities in the community estate are owned by the husband and wife together. Generally, all assets and liabilities obtained within the marriage are community property. Assets and liabilities obtained before marriage are deemed to be separate property. However, in some circumstances, if your spouse contributes to the repairs or maintenance of your separate property, your spouse may have a claim for reimbursement of those contributions. To learn more about your options, contact our Texas divorce lawyer Van Wiltz today.

At Wiltz Law, our initial consultations are free. Call us at 214-214-9653 to arrange a case review at no cost to you.
