Property Distribution in Divorce

How to Distribute Your Property Equitably

After making the often difficult decision to file for divorce, thinking about the distribution of property between you and your spouse can be a stressful prospect. You may already be aware that Texas is an "equitable distribution" state, but wondering exactly what that means. Who will end up with what when the dust settles? How will the judge decide what constitutes a fair division of the assets?

The subject of property can become heated very quickly, even amongst those couples who have thus far experienced an amicable separation. When involved with decisions that will affect the rest of your life, it is important to have The Karenko Law Firm PLLC on your side to walk you through the process. At my firm, I have helped many people through this difficult time. I am licensed to practice in Texas and Michigan, which gives me the unique ability to handle inter-state cases as well as those in each state alone.

Complicating Factors in Property Distribution

When it's time to sit down and decide which property is to be divided in a divorce, there are some factors that may serve to complicate matters, including:

  • Inheritance issues
  • Securities, retirement, and investment accounts
  • Real estate
  • Commingled assets
  • Professional businesses

Distribution of assets during a divorce is not a clear-cut science and there are multiple factors that a judge can take into account when deciding how to split up everything fairly.
