How Are Assets Divided In California?
California is a community property state, which means that the net value of the marital property must be split equally. Generally, marital property includes any assets and debt that were obtained during a marriage. Any property or assets that a person gets before marriage may be considered separate property, which is not divided in a divorce.
The types of property that are generally divided in a divorce include:
- A family home and vacation properties
- Automobiles and other vehicles
- 401k equity
- Checking and savings accounts
- CDs and IRA accounts
- Investment accounts
- Business ownership
- Land and other property
People who own multiple pieces of property or who have significant monetary assets can face unique legal challenges. Mr. Ryan has years of experience with these high-asset divorce cases and can guide you through the process.
Dividing Debts In A Divorce
In addition to splitting assets, any shared marital debt must also be divided in a divorce. This split debt can be overwhelming to newly divorced people. Mr. Ryan will help you create a plan for both your marital assets and shared debts.
