You are seeking a divorce, but you don't know how to proceed with how to divide your assets. We are here to help. California is a community property state, not an equitable distribution state, that means an even split for all assets or property that were gained during the course of the marriage. This also means that debts of either spouse are also to be shared equally.
Did you file for a prenuptial agreement? Were any of these assets or debts withheld from you? It is important to know your rights.
We certainly understand you might have more questions as it relates to Division of Assets Law. Call John H. Kibbler, Attorney, a family law firm in Santa Ana, CA today and we will be happy to help you.
