Texas Asset Division Lawyers

Protect your hard-earned assets during divorce with our aggressive and affordable DFW attorneys.

When a couple gets divorced, all of their community assets are separated, too. While common knowledge suggests this property will be split 50/50, it’s not always that simple. In fact, dividing assets is an extremely complicated issue. As your Fort Worth asset division lawyers, Sean Lynch + Associates will fight aggressively to make sure you get your fair share.

What Types of Assets Are Divided in a Texas Divorce?

Generally, every asset you acquire during your marriage is considered community property. During a divorce this property is divided, either through agreement between spouses, mediation with a third-party, or court order by a judge.

Texas divorce assets that will need to be divided include:

Along with financial accounts, and investments, the family home is a common asset in a divorce.

  • Real estate: Primary residence, vacation homes, etc.
  • Businesses: Owned businesses and business-owned property, as well as intellectual property
  • Transportation: Cars, boats, jet skis, etc.
Sean Lynch + Associates are ready to answer your questions about the Texas code asset division rules in divorce.

The asset division lawyers at Sean Lynch + Associates, PLLC, are pleased to offer some of the most affordable legal services in Fort Worth and Arlington. Unlike other law firms in DFW, we are up-front about our pricing, so that you know exactly what you’ll pay. 

We are able to offer the majority of our services for an initial retainer of $2500; however, some cases, like uncontested matters or enforcement cases, might be less. Likewise, some cases might require additional upfront funds.

What sets us apart from other attorneys is that we do not bill hourly. Rather, we bill out of the initial retainer based on a flat-rate, per event price structure, which is outlined in your contract. This way, you know exactly what to expect on your monthly bill based on what work has been done in your case. No hidden fees, only up-front pricing.

Do All Texas Divorces End in a 50/50 Asset Split?

Not necessarily. In some situations, a judge might rule that one party is owed a greater portion of the property than the other. With so much on the line financially, it’s critical that you hire an experienced asset division attorney who can maximize your share of the pie.

Does All Property Need to Be Divided in Texas Divorce, Or Are There Exceptions?

Texas is considered a community property state. This means that any property acquired before the marriage — or gifted to or inherited by one spouse during the marriage — is separate property, and therefore not subject to division during a divorce.
