Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
Texas is a community property
state. This means that regardless of whether or not you are on the deed, you:
1) Will get half the house if it was purchased during the marriage
2) Will not get half the house if it was purchased by the other party before marriage, or;
3) Will not get half the house if it was purchased during marriage but by money inherited or owned by the other party before marriage.
Of course the home cannot be "split." Either one party will get the home and the other half of its value from the rest of the estate, or, if neither party wants the home, it would be ordered sold and proceeds split.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
