Experienced Divorce Lawyers Serving The South Bay Area, Including San Mateo, Santa Clara And Southern Alameda Counties
In divorce the court is required to divide all community property assets and debts equally.
Separate property of either spouse or domestic partner is not subject to division in a divorce. Separate property includes all property that was owned prior to marriage and all property acquired by inheritance or gift.
Property acquired by the parties after the date of separation is also considered separate property. Business and professional practices that increased in value over the course of the marriage as well as separate investments that benefited from the commingling of assets and accounts often require litigation to determine fair valuation and equitable distribution.
Community property includes:
- Personal property
- Bank accounts
- Investment accounts
- Real estate
- Business assets and goodwill
- Retirement funds and pensions
- Life Insurance
- Intellectual property
