Money is a common source of contention between marital partners that can often lead to divorce. It is also one of the two most complicating factors in any divorce along with that of children. Whether you consider yourself affluent, middle-class, or struggling, marital property and your financial scene frequently become a source of dispute when considering divorce. This is even more pronounced for those who have been married a long time and/or have accumulated many and various assets and investments.

Because California is a community property state, you are looking at dividing your marital estate on as close to a 50-50 basis as possible. The exception to this is if you have an established and valid prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that sets forth the terms of your property rights and responsibilities in divorce.

Your marital estate consists of everything you and your spouse have acquired since your wedding. This can include:

  • Homes and other real estate
  • Bank accounts
  • Investments
  • Family-owned businesses, professional practices, or business interests
  • Vehicles
  • Boats
  • Jewelry
  • Retirement accounts and pensions
  • Any other property or assets of significant value

Marital property is differentiated from “separate” property which is essentially any property titled in your name only prior to the marriage. Separate property can also include gifts or inheritances given to you only during the marriage. However, where these assets are co-mingled into your marriage, they are generally ruled as community property by the courts. 

The division of marital assets and property can thus be a complex issue depending on the individual circumstances of how the assets were acquired, maintained, or disposed of during a marriage. This is why you need the services of a seasoned and proven law firm to ensure that your best interests are asserted throughout the process.
