Dividing Property During Gay Divorce

Dividing Property During Gay Divorce

During divorce, same-sex couples are often faced with additional considerations as many lived together or established domestic partnerships prior to the legalization of same-sex marriage. During this time, assets and property were commingled. The couple may or may not have signed a prenuptial agreement before getting married.

The added layers of complexity can make property division difficult, should the couple decide to divorce. It is critical that you have an attorney who understands the ins and outs of Texas property division laws, as well as how these guidelines are handled by local courts and judges. Without experienced legal representation, you stand to lose assets that may have actually been eligible to be considered community property.
