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 & 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.
Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
The complex legal process of divorce can leave both parties with many questions on how best to proceed with their case. What is entailed in property division litigation? How long will the legal process take? Can this case be settled out of court? These and other questions will be far easier to answer with an attorney’s help. Some couples assume that they can manage their divorce process without an attorney, believing that hiring a lawyer implies a sense of distrust. However, an experienced family law attorney has the necessary skills to be a trustworthy and effective mediator, making the process of property division much smoother for both parties.
A professional and knowledgeable attorney can help you fully understand the details of your case, keep the process fair, and make the overall experience much less stressful. If you are dealing with a spouse who has been aggressive or abusive, however, it is absolutely necessary to obtain legal assistance in order to protect your rights. At Holmes, Diggs & Sadler, we know that the legal process of divorce is both daunting and emotionally trying. Our team of experienced family law attorneys can help protect your legal options and best interests, particularly if there are major assets and property to divide.

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.
