Texas is a community property state. That means that, for a married couple, anything acquired during the marriage belongs to both spouses equally—property, salary, cars, returns on investments, pets, furniture—everything.

What exactly is mediation?
Mediation is a confidential process in which parties in dispute meet with a specially-trained, neutral and impartial third party (the mediator) who assists them in working towards a solution that will be acceptable to all parties.
