Property Division Laws in California

Divorce attorney Serving Clients in Rancho Cucamonga

When spouses decide to get a divorce or legal separation, they will have to resolve issues related to asset and property division. In order to ensure your rights and interests are protected, it is highly advised that you speak with an experienced and proven Rancho Cucamonga divorce lawyer. The state of California is a "community property" state, which means that when the marital property is divided, it is done as equally as possible.

The task of fairly and equally dividing property is not very simple one in most cases. Many factors can make the division process complex and cause emotional havoc between the divorcing parties. One spouse may try to hide assets or fight for property that doesn’t belong to them. Having an experienced family law attorney on your side during this time can make all the difference! That is why you should not hesitate to give us a call.

Come to Aruna P. Rodrigo, Attorney at Law for counsel. We provide the legal representation you need to clear the hurdles of property division and divorce.

What Is Community Property?

Community property is basically defined as property acquired after the marriage and before physical separation. Any property brought into the marriage, received as a gift, or inherited will usually not be included in the division if it is kept separate. For example, if one spouse entered the marriage owning a business and the value of it increases while married that increase in value could be counted as community property.

Other types of community property include:

  • Joint checking accounts

  • Each spouse’s income
  • Vehicles
  • Houses
  • Real estate
  • Marital debts
  • Home furnishings
  • 401k plans
