How is property divided in a divorce?

Due the fact that Texas is a Community Property state, when it comes to the division of property, all property acquired during the marriage, whether it be real or personal property, is considered to be part of the community, and thus will be divided in an equitable and just manner. However, each party will keep what is considered to be his or her separate property, which includes any property (personal or real) acquired prior to the marriage, and also any inheritance or judgments received prior to the marriage. It is important to note that even if the couple was married in a different state, but are filing for a divorce in the state of Texas, the community property categorization will be still be applicable.
