Protecting Your Property And Your Future In Divorce
Under California community property law, property owned separately before marriage is considered separate property. Property obtained during marriage is generally considered to be community property. There can be exceptions, however, especially when a couple has complex assets such as a business or commingled assets.
You can trust the divorce lawyers at Bowler and Bowler to protect your rights during property division and all aspects of divorce. Attorney E. Toby Bowler is a certified family law specialist who has represented hundreds of people in divorce. He understands that this is a stressful time for you and your family. He and the firm can provide answers and sound legal counsel that will help you make good decisions as you move forward.
Dividing The Marital Estate
Marital property can be divided only after each party has made a full financial disclosure of income, assets, debts and taxes. Marital assets may include:
- Personal property
- Real estate
- Bank accounts
- Retirement accounts and pensions
The firm can also assist you with complex property division if you have a high net worth or sophisticated assets.
The couple’s community debts must also be divided. Depending on the couple, marital debts may include mortgages, loans, credit card debt and taxes. A fair division of the marital debts is just as important for the future of each party as the division of assets.
