Beach Family Law

It is certainly not news that divorce can be incredibly complex

Especially when property division is a factor and there are assets like property, 401k’s, pension, and more.

At Beach Family Law, our team is highly experienced in representing our clients and ensuring that they receive their marital assets that they are entitled to in a divorce. California is one of the nine states that operates under community property laws when it comes to divorce.

This means that marital property is divided down right in the middle for whatever was acquired during the marriage. Therefore, even if only one spouse was employed throughout the marriage, both spouses are considered to own all the money that was earned equally. It is important to know that community property laws also extend to debts accrued, even if one spouse was unaware of any debt accrued during the marriage.

Whereas many other states operate under equitable distribution laws

Which means any property that was acquired throughout the marriage belongs to the spouse who earned it, with the exception of unusual factors. Property division is one of the most contentious elements in a divorce, along with child custody.

Inevitably, both spouses are often concerned of how the assets will be distributed and whether or not he or she will be entitled to a certain level of assets.

While there are many factors that are considered when it comes to determining how assets will be distributed, it is imperative to have a trusted and knowledgeable property division lawyer in Los Angeles on your side. In fact, hiring an experienced attorney is certainly one of the best things that you can do for your future.
