Part of a divorce case is separating two lives into one. For that to be accomplished, all shared assets and debts will need to be divided. Property division must be addressed in all California divorce cases either through negotiation or court orders. If your divorce is handled by the judge, he or she will separate your marital assets. California is a community-property state, and therefore, all property and assets acquired during the marriage are divided between both parties. Speak with our Palmdale divorce lawyer for legal assistance with your case.
Property Distribution in California
The property division process is based on various factors that can have a substantial bearing on the overall outcome. During complex divorce cases, property division can be a time-consuming and emotionally frustrating issue. Judges are required to order an equal division of the parties property within $500.
