After issues involving children, the property division process is often the most important aspect of a divorce. Dividing the assets and debts can become more about punishing the other party than getting what is fair. Before you spend time, money and energy in a protracted battle, consult with an experienced lawyer who can help you understand your options.

Seeking Fair Distributions of Property and Debt
Because California is a community property state, the general rule is that assets and debts acquired by either spouse during the marriage are divided equally upon divorce, except assets that one spouse receives by gift or inheritance. However, things are usually not that simple. Even property that you owned by yourself in your name only can become part of the marital estate. Some property division issues may be already decided in a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, if you have one.
When you visit us, we will analyze your assets and your debts and give you a full understanding of everything that is subject to division. Working with valuation experts when necessary, we can help determine the value of:
- Real estate, such as your house, rental properties or vacation residences
- Business assets, including good will, inventory and accounts receivable
- Insurance policies
- Stocks, IRAs and pensions
- Vehicles, jewelry, furniture and other personal items
We will also analyze your debt, which also needs to be divided upon divorce. We will work hard to ensure that you are not saddled with an unfair amount of the marital debt.
