Fighting for the Best Outcome in Your Divorce

or "community" can be grounds for contention between divorcing
couples. Community property is jointly owned by both spouses, and will
be divided more or less equally in a
divorce. If you or your spouse are filing for divorce,you need representation
by an experienced Pearland divorce lawyer who will fight with your best
interests in mind to make sure that you are getting what you rightfully
deserve in property division.

Property Division Lawyer in Pearland: Knowledgeable Assistance
Separate property is the property you owned before your marriage, and still
have. Any gift you acquire from anyone, or money or property you inherit
during the marriage, is separate property, as well. Also, any personal
injury settlement or verdict you receive for bodily injury or pain and
suffering is your separate property. Separate property can be transformed.
For example, if you use money you inherited to purchase property, the
property purchased is your separate property.
Everything else accumulated from the date of your marriage to the date
of your divorce is community property, and divisible in a divorce. The
court will divide community in a "just and right manner," which
may not be an equal split. Having a seasoned Pearland divorce attorney
to represent you in mediation will go a long way toward ensuring that
your divorce is handled in a quick and painless manner.
