Factors involved In Asset Division
Property that is determined to be community property will be split by the
court in a manner which seems “just and right” in their estimation.
Factors considered when divided a given piece of property include:
- Fault in the ending of the marriage
- Health of the parties
- Education of the parties
- Current income of the parties
- Specific nature of the property
- Any inheritance a spouse is likely to receive
- Debts of the parties
These factors all go into the final decision, meaning that Texas divides
property rather differently than other community property states. Courts
can justify an uneven division based on the above issues.
