Management of Community Property

Since Texas is a community property state, it is important to consider the implications of this when preparing a prenuptial agreement or establishing a comprehensive estate plan. Management of community property can involve a number of complex considerations with far-reaching implications, so it is important to work with an experienced legal team you can trust.

At Hayes & Wilson, PLLC, we provide sound legal counsel and estate planning and asset protection solutions for clients in the Houston, Texas, area. We bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to help you through every aspect of managing community property.

Management of Community Property

Because Texas is a community property state, Texas law presumes that all property within a marriage is equally owned by both spouses. A spouse wishing to claim property as separate property has the burden of proving it is not shared. This has many implications for married couples in Texas:

  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Asset protection
  • Estate planning, including wills and trusts
  • Durable powers of attorney
  • Tax considerations
  • Property division

We can help you manage your community property to minimize tax consequences and integrate comprehensively through every aspect of your overall estate planning goals.
