Negotiating Favorable Property Division Arrangements for Life Insurance Policies
Life insurance policies are considered community property under Texas law and, accordingly, must be divided fairly amongst the spouses. Exceptions to this rule do, of course, exist, including instances where the spouses agreed to divide life insurance policies differently under at premarital agreement. However, in most situations, life insurance policies are considered community property to be divided amongst the spouses.
If the spouses can agree to how life insurance will be divided, the court will honor this agreement between the spouses. If the spouses are unable to come to an agreement on their own, the court will intervene and divide the life insurance policies in a manner that is “just and right.” This may not necessarily be an even division; it depends on the facts and circumstances of each individual case.
