What Does Property Division Entail?

Dividing property and assets after a divorce can be a difficult and lengthy process. If you did not sign a premarital agreement, you and your spouse must agree on how your property is to be divided or a court will do so for you. This process may be stress-inducing if you cannot reach an amicable decision. Many times, people forget that the term property is all-encompassing and can even include things like lottery winnings and personal injury settlements. This makes the representation of an experienced family law attorney even more invaluable.

At Holmes & Holmes, we help our clients divide the following, and more:

  • Pensions
  • Debt allocation
  • Family heirlooms
  • Insurance policies
  • Personal property
  • Credit card accounts
  • The family home/homes

What Is the Difference Between Community and Separate Property?

Because California is considered a community property state, all of the assets obtained during the marriage become “community property.” This also includes any of the debts in incurred.

Here are some examples:

  • Community property: If you purchased a car during the marriage with money from your bank account, and that money was earned during the marriage, then that car would belong to both you and your spouse. Community property does not extend to gifts or inheritances.
  • Separate property: This refers to any properties that you owned individually before you were married. As long as that asset remains separate, it would remain to be yours. Your individual debts, anything incurred before the marriage and with your own money, would also continue to be your debts.

If you need assistance from a caring and capable attorney to help you during this time, we are happy to help. We have handled countless divorce cases in our 136 years as a family law firm, and we're prepared to provide the effective counsel you deserve.
