Mary Ramos is hands down one of the best family law attorneys in Houston. She knows the family code backward and forward and spends countless hours staying up to date on the most recent developments in case law. She is always prepared and knows how to turn up the heat at trial when necessary. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my closest friends and family.

Q. divorcing after 40 yrs. am i entitled to half the house and half of his ira? he abandoned me after my stroke
A: In Texas, assets acquired during the marriage are considered community property. This means that any asset earned or acquired during marriage– be it earnings, retirement accounts, real property, personal belongings, etc – are subject to a just and right division in a Texas divorce. Even if an asset is in one spouse's sole name, such as a 401k retirement account or motor vehicle, if acquired after marriage, it is considered community property in a Texas divorce.

Regarding spousal support, a spouse may qualify for spousal maintenance if the parties have been married for more than ten years. The exact amount and length of spousal support would depend upon several factors, including the resources and expenses of both spouses.

If the cost of legal representation is an issue, texaslawhelp.org is an excellent informational resource.
