Texas Family Code

Sec. § 3.404
Application of Inception of Title Rule; Ownership Interest Not Created


This subchapter does not affect the rule of inception of title under which the character of property is determined at the time the right to own or claim the property arises.


A claim for reimbursement under this subchapter does not create an ownership interest in property, but does create a claim against the property of the benefited estate by the contributing estate. The claim matures on dissolution of the marriage or the death of either spouse.
