Property Division

If you are facing divorce and have concerns about how your assets and debts will be divided, you should contact the Law Office of Michael D. Tracton, P.C., to consult with me. With more than 35 years of practicing family law and representing thousands of clients in divorces, I am familiar with how to best help my clients reasonably and fairly divide their property, assets and debts.

Establishing Separate And Communal Property

When dividing property during divorce, the general standard of dividing a married couple's property is through an equitable distribution standard. This means that all assets, property and/or investments that were acquired during the marriage will be automatically assumed in Texas to be community property and divided in a fair and equitable way between the parties. There are some circumstances in which property or debts belong exclusively to one party or the other.

Proper identification of property is fundamental to your financial health following a divorce. If you have a question or need assistance establishing separate property, I can help. With my experience in handling retirement plans, investment assets and other separate property, I know how to find ways to establish your property as separate and not communal.
