Burleson Property Division Attorney
Serving Johnson County & Greater Fort Worth
When a couple chooses to end their marriage, the property that they have collected while together must be fairly distributed between both parties. At Coontz Cochran, our Burleson property division lawyer can help you protect your interests.
Is Texas a Community Property State?
Yes. Any finances, assets, or property that were obtained while the couple was married will be considered community property and distributed in a manner that the courts deem appropriate. In most cases, the only pieces of your shared estate that will not be readily divided are gifts.
Community property states typically divide the assets and property equally. States that utilize community property division are often referred to as 50/50 states. However, in Texas, this does not mean that the property is truly split 50/50, but rather is up to the discretion of the court.

Distributing property can feel like a frantic land grab in even the most civil uncontested divorces. Trying to keep track of what was yours and yours alone can be extremely difficult without proper records and evidence.
Common Assets That Are Unfairly Split Due to Improper Litigation & Miscommunication Include:
- Real estate rights
- Family vehicles
- Control of a business
- Undocumented family heirlooms
When you are settling matters of property distribution, ensure that you and your lawyer have carefully reviewed any prenuptial or postnuptial agreements. Conditions could swing heavily in your favor when these documents are brought to the attention of the court.
