California Asset Protection Attorneys | Aggressive Counsel For Complex Property Division Issues
Although California is a community property state — meaning that marital assets acquired during the marriage are split evenly between spouses — there are nuances to the general law that can affect whether a court will divide certain property or allow one party to retain sole possession.
Specifically, gifts and inheritances made to one spouse, even during the marriage, are treated as separate property. Any property acquired following a separation is also considered separate property.
In California, a marital “community” ends when the spouses have physically separated with the intent not to resume the marital relationship. Determining when a community ends is a critical part of disputes over property division. Call 916-603-2913 to arrange to speak with an experienced lawyer regarding your divorce-related legal needs.
