Frequently Asked

Questions (FAQs)

FREQUENTLY ASKED

QUESTIONS (FAQs)

What is a common-law marriage in Texas?

Common law marriages are referred to as “informal marriages” in Texas. To be considered an “informal marriage,” you must answer “yes” to the following questions:

  • Is there an agreement to be married?
  • Are you living together in Texas?
  • Have you represented to others that you are married?

However, there are nuances with even these straightforward questions. For example, what if one party maintained a separate residence during the relationship? Do you introduce each other as a spouse? Consult a San Antonio attorney for specific questions regarding your situation.

Do I need a prenup?

You don’t have to have considerable wealth to benefit from a pre-nuptial agreement. Instead, a premarital agreement can help a couple keep the property, income, and debts separate. Conversely, it can even make individual property community property. 

Premarital Agreements are often used by couples that have children from a previous marriage and want to protect assets for their children from an earlier relationship.

A pre-nuptial agreement is necessary if a couple would not agree with how Texas law would divide the property, income, and debts after the divorce.

Can I record a phone call in Texas without telling the other person on the line that the conversation is being recorded? 

It depends on which state both parties are located in.

For example, if both parties are in Texas, only one party in the conversation needs to know that the call is being recorded. 

Does Texas recognize legal separation?

A “legal separation” does not exist in Texas. However, after a divorce is filed, a temporary order can dictate who will remain in the house and which party will be responsible for specific bills. 

Additionally, a temporary order can dictate that one spouse will pay child support to the other, and it can outline temporary visitation rights for the non-custodial parent.

In Texas, is marital property automatically divided 50/50?

Texas law does not insist that property must be divided equally. Instead, a judge will divide the community estate into a “just and right” division.
