If you are going through or anticipating a divorce, you probably have important questions about how property division will be handled. You may be concerned that you won't be treated fairly when assets are divided. It is important to consult an experienced family law attorney to deal with these questions and concerns.
California is considered a "community property" state. This means that, generally, everything acquired during a marriage belongs equally to both spouses. Property acquired before a marriage may be considered separate property. Some property can appear to fall into a gray area, while other property has value that is highly subjective.
