Property division: Are you ready to split everything 50/50?

Before 2019 ends, many California spouses will file for divorce. If you plan to be among them, there are certain issues you'll want to clearly understand ahead of time, such as how property division proceedings operate in this state. Whether you and your spouse are parting on friendly terms or you expect to have to fight for everything to which you may be entitled, it is best to learn as much as you can ahead of time to avoid surprises in court. 

California operates under community property division guidelines in divorce. This means family court judges typically split all marital assets and liabilities 50/50 between both spouses. Unfortunately, spouses who want to walk away with more than their former partners may try to fool the court by stashing cash or hiding assets.

Not only is this unfair, it is also illegal. Filing for divorce is a serious decision that is usually emotionally upsetting, even if both parties agree that it is the best option in their particular situation. Having to deal with property division problems may intensify emotional trauma; the good news is that you do not have to go it alone.
