Texas Divorce Attorney Says You Still Have Options

Video Transcript:

Judy Maggio:

If your house is in one spouse's name only on the title, does that mean the other spouse has no claim to it in a divorce? We asked Austin lawyer Jimmy Vaught in this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question. 

Jimmy Vaught:

You know, absolutely not, especially if it's community property and this applies across the board, it doesn't matter if one party is on it or not. If it's is community property, then it's community property, and I think some people make the mistaken assumption that their names on something, a title or a bank account, it's their property or their money. That's actually not true.
