Texas Divorce Lawyer Clarifies Community Vs Separate Property

Video Transcript:


Are stock options considered marital property in a divorce in Texas?

Jimmy Vaught: 

Yes, they are. Especially if the stock options were granted during the marriage, they're definitely community property. Now, if they were granted before marriage, but then they vested over the marriage, then it's usually split in a proportion.
