Texas is one of just nine community property states in the union. This means that when dividing property in a divorce, the court begins by assuming that both spouses have equal ownership in the marital assets and debts. It does not matter whether the asset is a couch, a home or a retirement account. Likewise, a mortgage loan receives the same treatment as a store credit card.

Only time will tell.
