Protecting Separate Assets

Experienced Divorce Lawyers Serving the South Bay Area, Including San Mateo, Santa Clara And Southern Alameda Counties

Problems arise when inheritance or family gifts are deposited into a community property account, or when earnings and salaries are mixed with an inheritance. If you are unable to prove what is separate property by direct tracing, it is presumed to be community property. There are alternate ways to trace, but good records are a must.
