League City Property Division Attorney

You have many decisions to make regarding property and asset division in your divorce settlement. With Apffel Law Firm, you can ensure that you make informed decisions that will result in the most favorable outcome possible.

Dividing property and assets is one of the most contentious points in divorce because each spouse generally wants to make sure he or she is leaving the relationship with as much as possible in his or her possession. However, we understand that every person and every case is unique. You might be completely fine with letting your ex-spouse take the house or physical custody of the kids. Maybe you do not want any part of his or her privately held business. But should you not get something of equal value in return?

Our firm can help you achieve a fair and equitable property division agreement that will secure your most favorable financial outcome possible whether you are an oil company executive or a homemaker.

Dividing Community Property And Defending Separate Property

  • What is community property? It's all property and assets that were acquired or grew during the marriage.
  • What is separate property? It's all property and assets that you owned prior to marriage in addition to certain gifts or inheritances that your received during marriage.

If property and accounts were commingled in marriage and no prenuptial agreement protects separate property, it could be ruled community property by the family law court.

Property that is eligible for division includes:

  • Real estate
  • Vehicles
  • Bank accounts
  • 401(k) funds
  • Pension funds
  • Business assets
  • Stock options
  • Oil operating interests
  • Other investments

Property division agreements rarely result in a 50/50 split between the parties. "Fair and equitable" division accounts for many factors, including contributions to the marriage, contributions to higher education, employability and education of each party, and much more.

We will vigorously protect your interests, establish accurate values to all property and guide you through every step of the process with straightforward counsel.
