Dividing trust fund assets in divorce

Texas community property laws apply to dividing trust fund assets in divorce. According to these laws, each spouse has equal interests in community property (assets that were acquired while the couple was married.) If the trust was established before the date of marriage, the trust fund assets may be considered separate property. However, the line between community and separate property often gets blurred, making the property division process more complex.

We will work to determine what type of property your trust fund assets are classified as, and proceed accordingly. Property division laws regarding the division of such assets are complex. It is important to work with a lawyer who thoroughly understands Texas property settlement laws, and how they apply in your case.

If you are expected to pay spousal support following divorce, the value of your trust fund assets will be considered when determining an amount.
