Marriage is a powerful legal and economic institution, and the terms of division of marital property, assets, and debt during divorce establish the basis for the future lifestyles of those involved.
The more complex your marital estate and the greater its size, the more essential it is that you retain an attorney with the appropriate experience to protect your interests and those of your children during divorce, particularly in a community property state.

Equitable division of assets and debt does not mean a 50-50 split
In California the court has broad discretion in apportioning marital assets and debt between divorcing spouses. Community property can be divided in any proportion the judge feels is equitable, or fair, after consideration of a long list of factors.
Marital property: family business interests
If you or your spouse has an interest in a partnership, limited liability company (LLC), or other closely held company, our attorneys will provide thorough and analytic services to protect your interest in the business and maximize the resources involved, including legal counsel regarding business valuation, division of partnership, transfer of shares, partial buyout, and transfer of control of the business.
The family home, car, personal property
Our attorneys will discuss options in regard to possession and division of equity in your house, automobiles, and personal possessions. We will help you identify top priorities and then work diligently to help you accomplish those goals.
Identifying marital property, tax considerations
Our lawyers will help you identify all types of individual and community property you may have an interest in, including retirement accounts, securities, IRAs, 401Ks, and trusts, and will help you determine the most efficient and beneficial terms. When offering our counsel regarding division of marital assets and debt, our attorneys will explain the tax implications of each strategy in light of alimony/spousal support, child support, and other considerations.
