Negotiating a Fair Settlement on Your Behalf

Whether you have been married for a long period of time or it was a marriage of short duration, there has likely been a commingling of your personal assets and funds. 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.

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 that 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 that 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.

How Does Separate Property Become Marital Property?

Since separate property is not part of marital property, it won't be divided in my divorce right? Under some circumstances, your separate property may be transformed into marital. In the world of family law, this is called transmutation. Transmutation of property may occur if one spouse owns real property prior to the marriage and during the marriage that spouse transfers title to the property into the joint names of the parties as tenants.
