Preserving Separate Property

Some property, even when it is acquired during the marriage, is not subject to a just and right division by the trial court. While you are dealing with the emotional demands of a divorce, our attorneys will properly trace the property that you are separately entitled to and ensure that it is not inappropriately classified as community property.

Some of the property that will be classified as your own separate property includes:

  • Property you acquired prior to the marriage;
  • Property acquired by you individually as a gift;
  • Property devised to you individually by a will or by another form of inheritance; and
  • Personal injury damages, even if acquired during marriage.
