The end of a marriage is, by nature, a painful experience, and it's normal for people going through it to feel a mix of emotions, including sadness, anger and even relief. However, divorce itself is a legal process that requires patience, persistence and painstaking attention to detail.

Dividing Community Property

The most time-consuming process in most divorces is the division of property. California is a community property state, which means that assets acquired before the marriage are considered separate property and assets acquired during the marriage are considered community property, belonging equally to both spouses. However, no one should expect a 50-50 split of everything in their divorce.

Instead, the property division process typically involves a great deal of negotiation, as the spouses divvy up their community property in a way that is fair. In some cases, the only way to make sure one party is not unfairly disadvantaged after the divorce is to order spousal support, commonly known as alimony.

Of course, some types of property are easier to divide than others. Real estate and retirement accounts can be difficult to divide, and often represent the largest assets in the community property. High-asset couples often have stock options, ownership stakes in businesses and other types of property that require intensive valuation even before they can be divided in a divorce.

We help our clients get better settlements so that they will be better equipped for happier times ahead.
