When a couple divorces, they have to make a lot of decisions about who gets what and what will happen to the children. One of the biggest concerns is their property and who owns what. Texas is a “community property” state, meaning that property obtained during the marriage belongs to both spouses. Property owned by each spouse prior to the marriage, though, remains separate property. When divorce becomes necessary, who can ensure that your separate property is protected during the divorce process and that community property is correctly identified and divided?
This is why having the right attorney can help you protect your property and ensure you receive what you deserve. Neal Ashmore has handled hundreds of divorces involving a broad range of assets, including:
