MARITAL PROPERTY CHARACTER OF PROPERTY AFTER A CHANGE
OF DOMICILE OR A SHIFT IN SITUS
THOMAS FEATHERSTON, JR.
Sponsored by Jackson Walker
Married couples move from state to state. Sometimes it is a move from a common law state to Texas, and sometimes it is a move to Texas from another community property state. Texas couples do occasionally leave Texas for a common law state. Texas spouses also invest in property having a situs in a common law state. Spouses in other states invest in Texas situs property. The presentation will address the effect these life events have on the property characterization and disposition of the couple’s marital property when the marriage eventually terminates either by divorce or the death of one of the spouses. Tom Featherston is the Baylor Mills Cox Professor of Law and 2009 recipient of the Distinguished Probate Lawyer Lifetime Achievement Award, which is given by the Real Estate, Probate & Trust Law Section of the State Bar of Texas. Featherston is a frequent presenter at CLE events across the country that deal with marital property rights and trusts and estates. Some of Featherston's most high-profile work has been on Texas legislation that deals with the subjects he teaches-marital property and trusts and estates. He has served as chairman for various committees. More recently, he co-chaired the State Bar's cooperative efforts with the Texas Legislature's Legislative Council in re-codifying the Texas Probate Code, the first and most comprehensive change in the statutory law affecting decedents' estates in more than 50 years. Featherston also provided oversight for two bar committees charged with drafting new substantive law legislation in the area of probate court venue and jurisdiction and independent administration and served as the academic resource for the Texas Legislative Council as issues were raised during the non-substantive new probate code drafting process. The new Texas Estates Code went into effect in 2014. Featherston earned his J.D. with highest honors from Baylor Law after receiving his B.B.A. from Baylor University.
