Community Property Attorney in Beverly Hills
California is a community property state. As such, a general presumption exists that all assets and debts acquired throughout the course of a marriage belong to the marital community and should be evenly divided upon divorce. Under the law, the marital estate ceases to exist at the date of separation and the characterization of property falls under one of the following categories:
Separate Property – Property and / or debt acquired by one party prior to the marriage. However, separate property can be converted into community property if the separate property owner commingles assets.
Community Property – Property and / or debt acquired during the marriage.
Quasi-Community Property – Property a couple acquires during their marriage in a non-community property state will be treated as community property upon divorce in California.
Community Property Division cases lead to hotly contested and time consuming litigation when the parties disagree about the date of separation or characterization of property, and these issues can have a substantial impact on the valuation and division of the marital estate.
