Property Division

When going through divorce, making an assumption about how property will be divided is a risky proposition. You need the help of a seasoned property division lawyer who will analyze all of the relevant details and craft a legal strategy to protect your rights. Asset distribution in a California divorce requires a thorough review of all of the potential assets. Determining what assets are community property, separate property, evaluating the debts in the marriage, finding the true and fair market value of assets, and addressing the individual goals of our clients are all steps that our attorneys diligently assess in each case.

  • Determining proper valuations for real estate, including the primary residence, secondary properties, coastal real estate and real estate investment holdings
  • Investigating business and professional interests to arrive at just and fair results in business valuation
  • Detailed analysis of family farm assets to protect the interests of our clients
  • Managing financial disclosure requirements and ensuring that your spouse has provided disclosure
  • Evaluating pensions, 401(k)s and retirement accounts

  • Addressing the values of art, jewelry and other community property assets
  • Advising clients about the potential capital gains tax implications of various assets, which could dilute the true worth of an investment if liquidated
