Sugar Land Marital Property Division Lawyer

Katy Divorce Division of Assets Attorney

In Texas, marital debts and assets are divided under the state's community property laws. This means that most property acquired during the marriage is considered community property, owned equally by both parties.

Certain debts or assets, including those brought into the marriage, are referred to as separate, and are allocated to individuals. Determining what qualifies as community property and what qualifies as separate property can be difficult. You want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests.

At the Law Office of John Millard, P.C., we have represented men and women in divorce and family law matters for more than 25 years. We know from experience that communication and responsiveness are critical to an effective attorney-client relationship.

We will listen carefully to learn the details of your situation and will keep you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options. We work hard to be available when you need to talk with us, or to return your calls and e-mails in a timely manner. We won't waste your time and money, but will work swiftly to get results that meet your needs.

Although we have extensive trial experience and can always protect your rights in court, attorney Millard is also a certified family law mediator, and can work with you to resolve your marital property differences without the time and expense of litigation.

Our Marital Property Division Practice

When you hire us to help you with property division in divorce, we will start by compiling an inventory of all marital debts and assets, including:

  • Real and personal property, from the primary residence or vacation homes to vehicles, boats, jewelry and electronics
  • Financial accounts, such as investments, insurance policies and bank accounts
  • Retirement funds, including IRAs, 401(k)s, deferred compensation and other pensions
  • Business interests, such as family partnerships

We will identify those assets that were brought into the marriage, as well as any property that is exempt from the community property laws, such as inheritance or money received as a result of a personal injury. We will then oversee the division of debts and assets in compliance with state laws.
