Basics of Property Division

One of the most basic components of divorce is the process of property division. The separating couple must decide who will take possession of homes, cars, pieces of art, and other valuables during divorce. Additionally, in some situations, the spouses must also divide any debts acquired during marriage. In order to ensure that your rights are protected throughout this process, you should enlist the services of a dedicated legal professional.

Questions to Consider

When developing property division agreements, attorneys generally must gain a better understanding of their clients’ property and each item’s importance to the separating spouses. In order to determine how to divide the property, you may be asked the following questions regarding each of your possessions:

  • Was the item bought together or previously owned by you or your spouse?
  • Is the item used for any work-related purposes?
  • What is the value of the item in question?
  • What contribution did you make to the purchase of the item?

A knowledgeable Houston property division lawyer can go through these questions with you so that he or she can help you devise a fair property division agreement.
