California Property Division
At the termination of a marriage the parties must divide property acquired during that marriage. Often this process is simple. On other occasions, however, this process is complex.
“Our firm has years of experience handling divorce and property divisions.”
Community Property vs. Separate Property
In California, most property acquired after the marriage is considered community property, which is evenly divided during a divorce.
Property obtained prior to marriage is considered separate property. These concepts, while seemingly simple, can often be subject to interpretation and require an attorney who is familiar with the legal intricacies to ensure your property is fairly divided.
