Dallas Community Property Attorney

Divorce Lawyer Serving Dallas / Fort Worth

During divorce proceedings, property which was acquired during your marriage will be inspected and divided up according to a formula that is outlined in law. If you want to prevent being taken advantage of during this process, then you need to work with a Dallas family law attorney from our firm. At the Mathur Law Offices, P.C., we are dedicated to helping clients maintain the rights to their own property. We are also able to assist clients whose property is threatened by any legal action generated by their spouse.

Community property is defined as the property other than separate property which was acquired during the course of the marriage. Even if the asset is in only one person's name, it is still considered community property at the time of the divorce if it was acquired during the marriage. Salary, cars, retirement savings, and more are all subject to community property laws and if you do not have an attorney to protect your assets, you may lose half of your ownership.

Property Settlement in Divorce Proceedings

Property is divided into two main categories regarding divorce property settlement. One category is community property and the other category is separate property. Separate property is property which was owned before the marriage took place, property in the form of an inheritance or gift, compensation recovered by the marriage partner from a case, or anything which is exchanged for property which falls under these headings.

Community property can be anything which does not fall under the above categories. A Dallas community property attorney can be of great importance in providing evidence to show that an asset is actually separate property. Ensure that you notify your lawyer early on in the divorce process if you own separate property or believe your spouse owes you a reimbursement. Certain factors influence the division of community property such as the income of each spouse, whether or not one brought about the divorce, and what kind of property is involved. Contact a Dallas divorce attorney today and find out how you can be assisted in retaining your property.
