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, Florida, and Michigan, which
gives me the unique ability to handle inter-state cases as well as those

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,
- 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.
