Property Division in Divorce Cases

One of the issues in settling a divorce is the division of marital property and debt. It is best if the divorcing partners can agree on how this issue should be resolved between them. If they cannot, however, the courts will decide for them based on state law, which is not ideal for anyone.

As a community property state, California law calls for an equal division of property between the spouses unless to do so would be unjust. This division doesn't necessarily equate to a physical division but rather a percentage of the total value. The partners each receive items which add up to their 50 percent of value. In the case of marital property, any property or assets acquired during the marriage is considered to be marital property except under certain conditions, such as an inheritance made to one spouse only.

Marital debt may also be divided on a 50-50 basis unless the court decides differently, based on which spouse has a greater ability to pay. Because this issue can be a heated one, it is in your best interests to have the guidance and counsel of an experienced divorce mediator, such as the Pasadena property division mediator at the firm. Mr. Baer has successfully helped hundreds of couples resolve their property disputes in a fair and just manner that keeps everyone feeling appreciated at the end.
