Marital Property Division in California Divorce

Division of marital property and assets in California is a community property issue. Any property or assets acquired during the marriage is therefore regarded as community property and is divided equally between the divorcing spouses. Debts accumulated during the marriage may also be divided equally or may be decided on the financial circumstances of the parties involved and who has the ability to pay them.

If you and your spouse cannot agree on how to divide marital property or debts outside of court, then the court will decide this issue based on the facts and evidence presented to it. Because such things as houses and vehicles cannot be divided, they may be awarded to one party by the court in an effort to create an equal division or the value of half may be granted. Property division for couples with a complicated financial situation or history can be a complex issue which requires a complete disclosure, assessment, and valuation of real estate, vehicles, stock portfolios, pension funds, art collections, and other investments.
