What happens to my property if I divorce in Texas?

     Unless the couple agrees to something different, all of their property in a Texas divorce is presumed to be community property that will be divided between them. Each party has the burden of proving that any particular item is separate property that the court may not divide and that will remain their own property. Also, either party may have a reimbursement claim against the other for money spent in certain ways during the marriage. In addition, in certain circumstances a spouse may ask the court to order one spouse to pay monthly spousal maintenance for a set period of time after the divorce.
