Well, in this case the answer is yes
, this is possible. However, it is not 100% automatic. The issue here is that if they lived together, then it would be assumed that he purchased the furniture as a gift for both of them
. As such, the Judge may assume that this was a gift, and she is entitled to roughly half, unless he can demonstrate by a preponderance of the evidence
(which is 51% or over) that it was agreed-upon and/or understood that the furniture was to be his, only. This becomes a largely he said/she said matter.
The way that someone may wish to petition the Court is via a Writ of Sequestration
under Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code - Chapter 62. See here
. Essentially, the writ asks the Court to give your son something which rightfully belongs to him. At this point then, the Court will decide whether there is enough evidence to consider it 100% his, based on what he says, and what she says (if she challenges the Writ).
An example of this Writ may be found here
