Wright, we work hard to provide our clients with the personalized legal services they need to feel supported and can offer you the guidance you need throughout your divorce proceedings. We are with you every step of the way.
The Benefits of Working with an Experienced Attorney
Throughout your marriage, you and your spouse probably acquired property together. This is considered communal property. Property that must be divided in the event of a divorce includes homes, cars and other vehicles, and vacation properties. Other items deemed dividable property include retirement plans, debts, and jointly owned businesses. Property held separately, including things such as inheritances, gifts, and businesses owned before the marriage occurred, remain with the original owner.
An experienced lawyer can help you through this process in many ways, including:
- Explaining California’s communal property laws
- Determining the value for non-monetary assets
- Uncovering hidden property
- Providing guidance regarding existing pre- and postnuptial agreements
- Mediating between yourself and your former spouse
- Representing you in court
- Providing you with all of your legal options
You have the option to come to a property division agreement on your own, but if you and your former spouse cannot agree, the courts will divide the property for you, generally in a 50/50 split.
