My husband left me after just a year of marriage. He makes more money than I do, and I cannot afford to pay for the house on my own. How would we divide this up?
Texas law requires an equitable distribution of assets–not necessarily an equal distribution. So you might sell the house and split the proceeds, or he might buy you out of your share. Or perhaps you take other property and he keeps the house. There are many ways to split things up. A lawyer can help you assert your interests while keeping your costs low.
