Dividing Community Property And Debts
Marital property is divided according to community property law. Under this law, all marital property is presumed to be community property unless:
- It was a gift or inheritance
- It is specified as separate property in a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement
- A single spouse owned the property before the marriage began
- You can establish individual ownership by proving ownership and when you acquired it
I will help you protect your share of marital assets and separate property, including real estate, vehicles, furnishings, financial accounts, retirement and investments. If you have commingled or complex assets, I will work with experts to value the assets and determine what you are entitled to receive.
In a separation, you must also divide the marital debts. This may include any judgments against both parties or other debts like a loan, credit card debt, taxes or mortgages. I will review your financial records and determine which debts are joint and which are separate. It is important for your future well-being that debt division is fair and that you understand your obligations after the divorce is finalized.
