Disproportional Share In Marital Estate

Division of Marital Estate Property

Although Texas is a community property state, it does not mean that marital property is always divided 50-50 in a divorce. There are many different factors that the family law court looks at when determining how marital assets will be distributed, including the following: fault in the break up of the marriage, the age of the spouses, the health of the spouses, the earning capacity of each spouse, fraud on the community, tax consequences of the division, the size of the separate properties that were brought into the marriage and who is to care for minor children (and whether that person should work outside the home).

Other key factors may include inheritances and gifts that affect each spouse's net worth. A skilled divorce attorney is able to find nuances in property valuation that may be valuable in making a case for a disproportionate share in the marital estate being awarded to his client.

Learn whether there are particular circumstances of your marriage the might lead a family law court to decide that one spouse or the other should receive a disproportionate share in the marital estate.
