Asset And Property Division

Dividing Marital Property And Assets Does Not Have To Be A Challenge

Disputes over marital property division are one of the top reasons why divorce cases go before family court judges. If you and your former spouse cannot agree on asset division, you need a lawyer who will fight for you. Ryan Family Law helps people in the San Diego metropolitan area with their asset division disputes and guides them through their divorce filings.

When you choose a divorce attorney, you want someone who has experience with asset and debt division. Attorney Paul Ryan has over two decades of legal experience and a long record of positive family law case outcomes. You can schedule your free consultation at one of our three San Diego locations by calling us at 858-222-6600.

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
  • Timeshares
  • 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.

I’ve been working with Paul Ryan on a difficult case for over a year and he has been a God-send. He is smart, personable, very down to earth and a fighter. I had two terrible experiences previously with different SD firms, and hiring Paul has been a welcome breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend Paul, especially for active duty military and veterans.

Paul Ryan helped me to keep my Alimony after my ex husband tried to end it. Paul, along with his incredible office... staff was very honest with me, always quick to answer all my questions, quick to call me back and even gave me discounts when paying my bill on time. This law firm is incredible and I would recommend them highly. I live in Las Vegas and we did everything over the phone. The hearing was in San Diego.They really care about their clients and this was a difficult case. Thank you Paul and your entire office staff. You all are truly one of the greats and I appreciate all your hard work on my case. Thank you.read more

I could not be more impressed by the actions of the Ryan Family Law Firm. I contacted them on a weekend and was... expecting a call or email on Monday, but instead I was called within the hour and the plan to resolve my issue immediately started. I look forward to continuing to work with Paul, Paula and the rest of the firm and I have no doubt they will give me exactly what I want. Paula did an amazing job representing me and giving me a taste of what is to come.read more

I have nothing but great things to say about Ryan Family Law. As the respondent in a divorce action, Ryan Family Law... (Paul Ryan, founder) consulted with me very thoroughly and my attorney (Paula) was just SO impressive with her attention-to-detail approach to my case. All contacts – email or phone call – made by me were always returned promptly (often in less than an hour) if my attorney was not readily available at that moment; at her end Paula kept me very, very well informed on all issues and movements associated with my case. Legal terms and common Family Law abbreviations were always explained to my satisfaction and understanding; communications with my attorney Paula or support/administrative staff was always prompt, professional and informative. Paula appeared in court alongside me or appeared on her own (as needed, recommended or prudent) and engaged opposing attorneys with tenaciousness and surgical precision on my behalf, resulting in a well-designed and favorable settlement.I would not hesitate to provide my most positive endorsement and candid recommendation for Ryan Family Law for persons wanting a tenacious and thorough approach to representing YOU for family law matters needing thoroughly professional handling and getting the highest possible probability for a favorable outcome.read more
