There are three factors to consider when you are dividing property during a San Antonio divorce: what is considered community property, what is the value of each item of the community property, and how such assets should be divided taking into account the circumstances of the parties, i. e. earning capacity, disability etc. Since community property can range from furniture to retirement accounts to the equity in a home, it is essential that you have the right tools at your disposal to protect yourself. 

Before you and I begin negotiations, it is important to prepare your own research of the value of different items and assets within the community property. With this, you will be able to prioritize what is important to you so that your attorney can strategically devise a plan to ensure that you have the divorce settlement that you deserve.

After a divorce settlement is finalized, it may feel like the worst is finally over – but what if your former spouse fails to comply with the agreement? If you have not finalized your divorce settlement with your spouse, but you are concerned about this issue, then the best preventative measure is to include appropriate clauses in your divorce decree detailing how the property division will be accomplished. 

If the divorce settlement has already been finalized and your former spouse is not complying with the terms, you will need to go back to court so that a San Antonio court will legally force them to comply. The courts will force your former spouse to comply with the terms are seizure of assets,  bank account garnishment, eviction, transfer of liability (such as debts), and civil or possibly even criminal penalties etc.
