Houston Property Division Attorneys
When a couple decides to get a divorce, they will have to go through what’s referred to as property division. In this process, properties acquired by the couple throughout their marriage will be subjected to a fair division (although not necessarily an “equal” division) between the two parties. However, there are many nuances to property division, something which we at Holmes, Diggs, Eames & Sadler know many people in Houston struggle to understand. Fortunately, with the help of a skilled legal professional, you can make sure your interests and assets are protected during the divorce and property division process.
Assets and Property Division
Property division applies to any property that has been acquired by a couple during the term of their marriage. Though it does not apply to things owned by each person before the marriage, some common assets that need to be divided during a divorce include:
- Homes / residential property
- Commercial property co-owned
- Personal belongings, like furniture
Often, assets will not be divided in a monetarily equal way. Rather, they may be divided based on the personal value an asset has and other factors.
