Property Division in California
California is a "community property" state. This means that any assets or debts acquired during the marriage are the property of both spouses. Community property must be divided equally at the time of divorce.
Sometimes, the court awards one spouse more than half of the marital estate. This is usually in response to cases of domestic violence or circumstances where one spouse irresponsibly squandered the marital assets without the other's knowledge or consent.
Valuation of Businesses, Real Estate, Pensions and Other Property
Failing to assign an accurate value to any asset can result in an unfair divorce settlement. We work with appraisers, accountants and other professionals to accurately evaluate our clients' assets.
We have the skills and experience to assess the value of businesses, real estate, pensions, 401(k)s, stock options and other complex assets. Our strong financial background ensures clients that their matters will be handled properly and no detail will be overlooked.
