Helping Clients In Corona Del Mar With California’s Community Property Laws
In a divorce, the State of California follows community property laws. This means that any marital property or assets that were acquired during the marriage are presumed to be community property which must be divided equally between the parties upon divorce.
What Is A Marital Asset?
Any assets or property that was acquired after the date of the couple’s marriage is considered community property – with a few exceptions. Community property is divided equally between the parties. Any separate property remains with the spouse who owns the asset.
What Is Separate Property?
In California, separate property is defined as an asset owned by a party before the marriage. Separate property also includes an inheritance or gifts that may have been received by a party during the marriage. In addition, separate property includes income received after the date of the parties’ separation.
