In Texas, how are retirement benefits divided in divorce? We ask Texas attorney Duana Boswell-Loechel, in this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.

Duana Boswell-Loechel: 

Retirement benefits, you'd have to determine if they're all community property or if you have some separate property. The community property portion would be divisible 50-50 or any other percentage that is deemed appropriate, and the separate property would belong to the spouse that earned it as separate property.
