Texas Marital Property Rights is a survey of important legal concepts relating to the topic. Each of the twenty chapters surveys a topic. For example, the first chapter provides an overview of Texas community property theory, why certain property is considered community and some separate. Most chapters contain introductory material regarding each topic, so students have some background before wading through cases. This is particularly helpful in areas such as pensions, which are quite complicated. Notes after many cases provide more information about Texas law in a particular area. Some information is presented to encourage students to think of how these problems will arise in the context of legal practice. For example, the book features material about client counseling and dealing with difficult clients and situations, as well as the challenge of drafting unambiguous documents. This book also frequently points out when various community property states disagree about how to deal with an issue. In addition, when there are no Texas cases addressing an issue, cases from other states are included.
