Division of Marital Debt

People facing divorce in Texas often forget that debt accumulated over the duration of the marriage is likely to be considered marital property, subject to equitable distribution between the divorcing spouses. Texas is a no-fault divorce state. Even if one party shares substantial blame for the divorce, the other spouse cannot necessarily avoid all responsibility for the accumulated debt.

If you reside in Texas and marital debt will be a significant component of your pending divorce, talk to me about options to protect yourself.

I can help you understand the laws about debt and how to move forward with your financial interests intact.
