Answering Important Questions About California Divorce

California Family Code, as it applies to divorce is exceedingly complicated. As your counsel, we illuminate the law for you so that you can make the informed decisions that are best for your family. To provide more information as you begin the process of dissolving your marriage, we have answered a few of our clients’ most frequently asked questions.

How does community asset division work in California?

In Orange County, divorce courts divide community property equally between spouses. This means that any assets acquired during the marriage are presumed to be  jointly owned. They are subject to 50-50 division unless the spouses reach an agreement is reached that dictates otherwise.

What happens to shared debts in California divorces?

Shared debts in California receive similar treatment to shared assets. Both parties may assume 50-50 responsibility for debts incurred during the marriage unless the parties to the divorce decide otherwise.

What will happen if my spouse and I have multiple real estate properties?

Handling multiple real estate properties requires careful consideration of their value and whether they are separate or marital property. If the title is in only one party’s name, it will likely that it will be characterized as that party’s separate property. However, community income was used to pay the payments on the property  or improve it, the community may have an interest in the property. Spouses may  decide to sell the home and split the profit, buy out the other spouse’s share or offset other assets of equal value. Our Anaheim Hills divorce lawyers work with you to evaluate these factors and reach a fair distribution that aligns with California law.

If my spouse and I agree on things, do we still need a divorce attorney?

Even if you and your spouse agree on the terms of your divorce, it is wise to consult with a family law  lawyer. Your divorce attorney will explain your options and give you a cost-benefit analysis, protect your rights, draft legally sound agreements and move smoothly toward a final decree.
