When a divorce is underway, property division can become a contentious issue. Your former better half is entitled to a fair half of the marital estate, but if your ex-spouse takes more, you may have a claim for marital waste.
As a community property state, Texas courts expect couples to create fair agreements to divide all assets not held separately. In some cases, out of spite or other cause, one spouse purposefully deprives the other of rightful assets. Points concerning marital waste include:
Both partners have a responsibility to safeguard assets to be divided during divorce. When that does not occur, the court can provide relief to the wronged spouse. If you are concerned about loss of property, value or assets during your divorce, seek skilled legal help.
