Should I Buy a House While Separated from my Spouse?

by Ricardo Barrera

Texas law provides that property acquired during a marriage is presumed to be the property of the community, or of both marital partners. When one acquires a home during a period of separation or while anticipating a divorce, there are likely to be issues that may be avoided with the proper strategy. 

A party may be able to affect title and have the court consider said property, even when purchased with the help of the non-marital partner. Parties may enter into an “Agreement Incident to Divorce” in order to come to an agreement relating to divorce issues prior to the official dissolution of the marriage, but these issues are complex and should be taken on with the help of a qualified lawyer.
