According to Texas law, a just and right division of community property and liabilities is required. In some cases, what is just and right may be a 50-50 split. In others, a disproportionate split may be necessary based on a number of factors. At The Lincoln Law Firm, PLLC, you will find a Houston community property division attorney dedicated to making certain your outcome is just and right.

Factors That Affect A Just And Right Division
There are numerous factors which need to be taken into consideration when determining how property should be divided. You must choose a lawyer familiar with these factors in order to ensure that nothing is overlooked.
Some of the common factors include who will get custody of the child or children, the earning capacity of the spouses, the education and employability of the spouses, the size of separate estates, the health and age of the spouses, and the length of the marriage. In other words, if one spouse is earning twice the amount the other spouse earns, the lower-earning spouse may receive more than 50 percent of the parties' community property. If a spouse gets custody of three children, it may be just and right for that spouse to get a larger portion of the community estate. Similarly, if one spouse is less educated and will have difficulty finding a job that pays well after the divorce, a larger portion of the community estate to that spouse may be justified.
