HOUSTON CASE LAW ON REIMBURSEMENT CLAIMS IN DIVORCE


Jensen v. Jensen (Tex.App.- Houston [14th Dist.] Feb. 23, 2010)(Brown) (divorce property division, foreign
spouse, international aspects of family/divorce law)(divorce property division affirmed) (community vs.
separate property, reimbursement claim)
Appellant Tammy C. Jensen appeals the property division in a divorce case.  Tammy contends that the evidence does not
support several of the trial court’s findings of fact and that these findings resulted in a manifestly unjust and unfair property
division.  She also contends that the trial court abused its discretion by awarding Barry Jensen one-half of the shares of stock
from one of her accounts while allocating all of the associated debt to her and by denying her claim for reimbursement of her
separate funds used for the down payment on their residence.  We affirm.
AFFIRMED: Opinion by Justice Jeff Brown     
Before Justices Brock Yates, Frost and Brown
