Reach out to our Angleton, Texas divorce lawyer for answers to your questions regarding:
- Marital property vs. separate property. Before your divorce can be finalized, you and your spouse must come to an agreement about how to divide property, pay off debts, and split assets. Texas is a community property state, which means that at the time of divorce (or death) all property is assumed to be the property of both spouses, as is all debt. This means that all property will be considered marital property, and subject to division as such, unless there is clear evidence that certain property is separate – property that is acquired prior to the marriage or acquired by gift or inheritance.
- Creating a parenting plan. If you are a parent, you and your spouse will also need to work together to create a parenting plan before your divorce can be finalized. The parenting plan will outline the rights of each parent in regard to parenting time and legal decision-making responsibilities, the visitation schedule and how the child will be transported from one parent’s home to the other’s, details of the child support obligation, and a variety of other issues that may affect the child, such as details about how disagreements will be resolved, where the child will spend summer vacation, etc.
- Spousal maintenance a divorce. When parties are divorcing, one spouse may make a request for spousal maintenance, or alimony. Spousal maintenance can be agreed upon by both spouses, or a judge may order maintenance if the spouse seeking maintenance lacks the sufficient assets/income/property to provide for their reasonable needs.
- Prenuptial agreements and divorce. Finally, many people form prenuptial agreements at the time that they get married, or postnuptial agreements at some point during the course of the marriage. At the time of divorce, the prenuptial/postnuptial agreement will need to be reviewed. If it is legally valid, then issues will be determined per the terms of the agreement. This is one way to fast-track a divorce.
