SCOTT BRISTER, Chief Justice.
In this divorce action, appellant Gloria Hernandez DeAnda Osorno, former spouse of appellee Henry Osorno, contests (1) the enforcement of the couple's premarital agreement, (2) the denial of her motion for continuance, and (3) the division of the marital estate. We affirm in part and reverse and remand in part.
Gloria was forty years old when she met Henry in February 1992. In August, Gloria discovered she was pregnant. According to her, Henry wanted her to have an abortion, which she refused for religious reasons. In September, Henry agreed to marry her if she signed a premarital agreement. Both Henry and Gloria signed an Agreement in Contemplation of Marriage on October 9, 1992, and were married the following day.
Henry filed for divorce on December 22, 1998. Gloria contested the enforceability of the premarital agreement. A hearing was held before a master at which both Henry and Gloria testified. The master found the agreement enforceable.
Enforceability of the Premarital Agreement
As the party attacking a premarital agreement, Gloria had the burden to show (1) she did not sign the agreement voluntarily or (2) it was unconscionable and she did not receive proper disclosure
For duress to be a contract defense, it must consist of a threat to do something the threatening party has no legal right to do. See Brown v. Aztec Rig Equip., Inc., 921 S.W.2d 835, 845 (Tex. App.-Houston [14th Dist.] 1996, writ denied). In this case, aside from his moral duties, Henry had no legal duty to marry Gloria. His threat to do something he had the legal right to do is insufficient to invalidate the premarital agreement. Gloria was faced with difficult choices, but we cannot find her decision to sign the agreement was involuntary. See In re Marriage of Dawley, 17 Cal.3d 342, 131 Cal.Rptr. 3, 551 P.2d 323, 331 (1976) (refusing to set aside premarital agreement signed under pressure of unplanned pregnancy). We overrule Gloria's first point of error.
Denial of Motion for Continuance
After the hearing regarding the premarital agreement on July 14, 1999, the parties were notified to return for trial on August 5, 1999, at 9 a.m. On the morning of trial, Gloria did not appear, and her counsel requested a continuance because of medical disability. The parties vigorously contested whether she was truly disabled. The master hearing evidence denied the motion for a continuance and ordered the parties to reappear at 1 p.m. Gloria arrived at 1:18 p.m. shortly after trial had begun, and testified at length. Gloria argues the trial court erred in denying her motion for a continuance.
Gloria's motion was supported by two letters from her treating physicians, but neither was sworn. Without sworn affidavits, the motion was insufficient. Tex.R. Civ. P. 251; Mathew v. McCoy, 847 S.W.2d 397, 399 (Tex.App.-Houston [14th Dist.] 1993, no writ). We overrule Gloria's third issue.
Just and Right Division of the Marital Estate
In her second point, Gloria asserts there is no evidence to support the trial court's disproportionate division of the marital estate.
In this case, there are no findings of fact or conclusions of law, and the divorce decree does not expressly list what property was found to be separate or community. Assuming all property in the "Division of Marital Estate" portion of the decree was community, see Magill v. Magill, 816 S.W.2d 530, 532-33 (Tex.App.-Houston [1st Dist.] 1991, writ denied) (finding property listed under designation "estate of the parties is divided as follows" was characterized as community property), the court awarded almost three-fourths of the estate to Henry (using his own property values). Although the court was not
The inequity of this division shrinks or even disappears if several of the assets awarded to Henry were his separate property. Henry argues that accounts listed in the decree totaling almost $100,000 were designated his separate property in the parties' premarital agreement. But the only evidence as to the source of funds placed in those accounts was Henry's testimony; no deposit slips or bank records were offered tracing the money to support Henry's claim. Without tracing, Henry's testimony cannot overcome the community property presumption. See Evans v. Evans, 14 S.W.3d 343, 346 (Tex.App.-Houston [14th Dist.] 2000, no pet.); Robles v. Robles, 965 S.W.2d 605, 614 (Tex.App.-Houston [1st Dist.] 1998, pet. denied) (explaining that mere testimony without tracing is generally insufficient). Because the evidence is insufficient to support a separate-property finding, we sustain Gloria's second point of error.
We affirm the judgment finding the premarital agreement enforceable, but reverse the portion of the final decree of divorce dealing with the division of the marital estate and remand for a just and right division of the community estate. See Evans, 14 S.W.3d at 347 (holding mischaracterization that materially affected just and right division required remand).
