Santa Rosa Property Division Lawyers

It is often said that divorce is an economic disaster for both parties involved. This sentiment stems from the far-reaching and often invasive process of property division. Divorce requires disentangling real estate, personal property, debts and financial investments.

Because of the economic impact of divorce, it is critical to be proactive in protecting your property rights. Hiring a family law attorney is the first step toward minimizing the financial earthquake often caused by divorce.

Protecting Your Property Rights In Divorce

California is a "community property" state, which means all property acquired during the marriage is considered marital property. Courts will generally divide this property 50-50 unless the couple agrees to another arrangement. Ensuring a fair and accurate valuation of the property often has a critical impact on the outcome of property division.

Whatever the type or extent of property involved, it is important to consult with a family law attorney to protect your interests and avoid getting taken advantage of.

Marital property subject to division can include any and all of the following:

  • Your home
  • Real property
  • Bank accounts
  • Investments and stocks
  • Retirement accounts
  • Self-employed or family-run business
  • Debts

In today's economy, many couples are also struggling with upside-down mortgages, credit card debt and impending foreclosures that can further affect property division.
