The Property Division Process

The term community property generally refers to all assets and debts acquired during the marriage, with some exceptions. California law provides that community property should be divided on a 50-50 basis.

In reaching a settlement, community property must be characterized, valued and divided. This can present some highly complex questions:

  • What happens to separate assets that become community property during the marriage?
  • How do you trace these transformations?
  • What is the true value of non-financial assets such as personal property and real estate?
  • How do you divide a marital estate that consists primarily of a house and retirement assets?
  • What property is not subject to equal division?

The Law Offices of David M. Lederman has extensive experience in all aspects of property division. We understand the law and the complexities inherent in the property division process, and will apply them to your case.
