We understand the many difficult issues associated with allocating and distributing marital property and marital debts. The solution can quickly become quite complex and difficult to negotiate. We are here to help. California law establishes that property is generally either community property or separate property. Separate property is normally property owned prior to marriage or property inherited at any time. Community property is normally all other property. This distinction can have a dramatic impact on the total assets you will be awarded as part of a divorce. We can guide you through these difficult issues so that you have a clear understanding of what assets or debts you can expect to receive.
