Orange County, California, Property Division Lawyers
For purposes of divorce, California is a community property state. Typically, this means that any property or assets earned during the marriage belongs to both spouses. This also includes a mutual ownership of debts incurred while a couple was married. In theory, community property division is 50/50 but due to complex laws and individual circumstances, this is not always the case. Any property held before the marriage or received as a gift is considered separate and belongs to the individual spouse.
Issues in property division arise in almost every case, including disagreements over community versus separate property, date of separation and allegations of hiding assets. Additional complications come into play when one spouse is a business owner. Enlisting the legal services of a skilled and experienced divorce lawyer is essential to ensure that your rights are protected during the division of assets.
