In Texas, the family law courts generally consider property acquired during a marriage to be community property. Some property acquired by one of the spouses may remain separate property if acquired by family inheritance. In most cases, dividing marital property for a fair divorce settlement may not entail more than determining the value of a house and other financial assets. In cases involving real estate holdings, ranches, closely held businesses, and pension plans, however, resolving property settlements can become complicated and require experienced legal representation.
