Getting married is a major step to take for any couple in California. And much like a couple does not enter this union without much thought, couples do not end this union without making some major decisions. However, even when a divorcing couple is prepared to deal with the issues that come with the process, this does not mean it is easy or without emotional turmoil and disputes. One of the most contentious divorce issues is property division, as it is often hard for divorcing spouses to see eye-to-eye on throughout this process.
It is not uncommon for a spouse to be unsure of their property rights during and after a marriage, as one does not always label property as marital and non-marital as they accumulate it. While including a prenuptial agreement in a union can help spell this out for spouses, this step is not always taken. So whether a marital document was included or not, the attorneys at Joseph R. Zoucha, Attorney & Counselor at Law, are dedicated at guiding spouses in the Redwood area through the property division and divorce process.
Because California is a community property state, our law firm will take the time to explain what this means to our clients. We will take the time to assess the assets and property included in the marriage, determine their values and establish whether it is considered separate property or community property. This information can then be used to help our clients negotiate a fair property settlement, or if necessary, argue the matter in court.
