How Is Marital Property Divided In California?
California uses the "community property" approach, meaning that, with limited exceptions, property you acquire during marriage is considered to be shared equally between spouses. The exceptions, called separate property, include property acquired prior to the marriage as well as gifts an inheritances acquired by one spouse. When spouses are unable to reach an agreement about how their property should be divided, a court will divide their community property equally.
Avoid Costly, Protracted Litigation
If you and your spouse wish to decide for yourselves how your property is divided, it is best to negotiate your own agreement outside of court. I offer family law mediation services that can help you avoid protracted litigation over division of property and other issues, thus minimizing the emotional and financial costs of divorce. When it is necessary to fight for you at trial, however, I am fully prepared to vigorously protect your rights and interests.
