Property Rights & Division
When it comes to property rights and property division in a divorce, three questions need to be answered: What’s mine? What’s theirs? What’s ours? As simple as it seems, finding the answers can often prove difficult.
At the Law Offices of Patricia A. Hendrickson & Associates, we represent spouses and registered domestic partners in divorce and dissolution, and in the separation of community and non-community property. Our property division attorneys are highly skilled at properly framing our clients’ cases and handling the complexities of property division such as businesses, pensions and retirement accounts, investments and stocks, stock options, real estate, and marital debts.
California is a community property state, which means that any property acquired during the marriage will be divided equally between the spouses. However, because what each person brings into a marriage usually becomes co-mingled with marital assets over time, it is important to closely analyze each client’s unique situation right down to the smallest detail. It must be done right the first time. That’s where our property division attorneys come in.
