Asset & Debt Division

Real Power, Real Purpose, For Real People

ASSET AND DEBT DIVISION

Furubotten Law handles property division with the utmost care.

When parties separate as the result of a divorce or legal separation, the court must decide how to divide property and other assets as well as assign any outstanding debt. The court must do this no matter whose name is attached to an asset or debt. Asset and debt division includes real property, cash, stocks, pensions, investments, household items, jewelry, art, etc.

California is a community property state. This means that any property acquired during the marriage will normally be divided equally between the parties. Generally speaking, property acquired prior to marriage, after separation, or obtained by gift or inheritance is separate property and will be awarded to the party acquiring the property. However, there are many factors and circumstances which can change the characterization of a particular piece of property.

Parties often fall into the trap of believing that “title” to property or the name on an account determines the characterization of the property. It some cases title and name may determine who the property belongs to. In other cases in makes no difference at all. Even in cases where the property may ultimately be awarded to one party, the other party may be entitled to some financial compensation for specific property.
