South Texas Divorce Attorneys To Guide You Through Property Division

Dividing up your assets with your spouse is one of the most important parts of divorce, but it can also be one of the most confusing and stressful. Most people do not want a long, expensive battle over every piece of property, but they do not want to sacrifice their rightful share of what they worked so hard to achieve during their marriage. An experienced and dependable family law attorney can make all the difference when it comes to property division.

With offices across South Texas, Quintana & Barajas, PLLC is here to help ensure you start your life after divorce on a solid financial basis. We understand that your situation is unique and needs an approach tailored to your needs. Our team of attorneys will work closely with you to reach a property settlement or court order that meets as many of your priorities as possible.

How Property Division Works In Texas

Texas is one of a minority of states that use the community property system for dividing property in divorce. This works by taking each asset the spouses own and determining whether it is community property (owned jointly by the spouses) or separate property (owned by one spouse). The law requires that community property must be divided 50-50 between the parties. Each spouse gets to keep their own separate property.

Often, the biggest disputes come up when the spouses cannot agree on whether a valuable asset like a retirement account or the family home is community or separate property. We thoroughly investigate all the assets and debts you and your spouse own to accurately divide them into community and separate property. We also work with experts to get valuations of assets like a small business and real estate, so you know exactly what they are worth and what you are entitled to.

Most of all, we will work diligently for your best interests. As seasoned negotiators and respected litigators, our lawyers will stand up for your rights and guide you through the process with frequent communication and respect.

What About Uncontested Divorce?

In an uncontested divorce, the spouses settle all their disputes, including property division, before filing for divorce. When spouses can work together this way, uncontested divorce can be a good option for reducing costs, saving time and minimizing stress and emotion. Our attorneys are experienced in uncontested divorce and can advise you honestly on whether it is the best option for you.
