Securing A Fair Property Division Settlement

Division of marital property is one of the first issues that arises during a divorce proceeding. There are many factors that determine how property is divided. This can include factors such as the length of marriage and when the property was acquired.

California is a community property state, which means that all property deemed community property is divided as equally as possible between the two spouses. Not everything is considered community property, however. Property that was acquired before the marriage will likely remain with the person who originally purchased it.

Equitably Dividing Marital Assets

Division of property can be a difficult and complex part of the divorce process. Obviously, a house or car cannot be divided in half, so your attorneys, mediators, and/or judge will try to determine an equitable division of the assets. In some cases, a judge may think it is best for you to sell the house or car and split the money from the sale. Along with division of property, you must also consider dividing debts. It is not uncommon for a judge to require that some community property or assets be liquidated in order to pay off community debt.
