Difference Between Marital Property and Separate Property in Texas

Texas is a community property state, which means that all marital property will be divided as evenly as possible in a divorce. Although this typically results in a 50/50 split, Texas uses a “just and right” standard, so there may be cases in which one spouse receives a greater or lesser share. Generally, any assets you obtained throughout the marriage will be considered marital property, with a few exceptions, such as an inheritance.

Separate property, on the other hand, includes any assets that you or your spouse had before you got married.

Additionally, separate property also includes:

  • Money you received for personal injuries (with some expectations such as money that is to compensate for list wages)
  • Assets you acquired from separate property
  • A gift you received during or before your marriage

In some cases, property and assets may become commingled, which can complicate matters in a divorce. Commingled property is particularly common in long-term marriages. If you and your spouse cannot agree on which assets are separate property and which are marital property, an experienced divorce attorney can advocate on your behalf to protect your share of assets.
