Negotiating a Fair Settlement on Your Behalf

There are many different factors that will be taken into account when the court is making a decision on property or asset division. For example, if you owned the family home, but your family lived in the home for a number of years, this may be considered as community property in the eyes of the court. If you choose to have my firm represent your case, you can rest assured that I will put forth my experience and skill to your advantage.

There are two basic categories of property when it comes to property division in a divorce case:

  • Community property (marital property) - Community property includes personal or real property which was acquired during the marriage. Your regular income may be included, even if you had it in a separate bank account.
  • Separate property - Separate property are those assets which were given to you prior to the marriage. Separate property also includes gifts received before or during the marriage and any inheritance you may have received.
