Texas Divorce Attorney Explains Community VS Separate Property

Video Transcript:

Nancy Zabrano:

Can you make a claim on a marital home if it's only titled in the other spouse's name in a Texas divorce? Let's ask Houston lawyer Duana Boswell-Loechel in an Ask the Lawyers Quick Question. 

Duana Boswell-Loechel:

So what the divorce courts will look at in determining where we have community or separate property is when the property was attained, when the title was gotten. If it was during the marriage, it'll be community property and it doesn't matter whose name is on the title. If it was done before the marriage or because somebody has passed away and left it to him or gifted the house or property, then that would be a separate property and they wouldn't have a claim on that.
