California is known as a “community property” state, and the estate of married persons is classified as either community property (owned by both spouses during their marriage) or separate property (acquired by each person before the marriage or gained through inheritance). In a divorce, the court needs to know the type of community property that must be divided and the type of separate property that cannot be divided. This asset division can become very complicated, as illustrated by cases where married couples each used their separate assets to buy their family home and now are divorcing. Such intricate cases require the expertise of a skilled attorney in order to fairly determine the value of the family home. The Aubry Law Firm understands such complexities and will use their extensive experience in tracking asset merging and to work to bring about a just property division settlement for you.
