Understanding California’s Community Property Laws

California’s community property laws require that all assets and debts acquired during the marriage be divided equally between the spouses upon divorce. However, distinguishing between community property and separate property can be complex, especially with commingled assets getting added to the mix. Thankfully, our experienced attorneys can help clarify which assets are subject to division and which are protected as separate property.

Comprehensive Asset Evaluation

Accurate evaluation of all marital assets is a critical first step in any divorce proceeding. Our team works diligently to assess the true value of all marital property, including real estate, business interests, and retirement accounts. This thorough evaluation ensures that the division of assets is based on accurate and current valuations, protecting your interests.

Strategic Negotiation and Mediation

At Kendall Gkikas & Mitchell, LLP, we understand the emotional and financial stress involved in divorce. We strive to resolve property division through negotiation and mediation and aim for solutions that meet the needs of both parties. Our skilled negotiators work diligently to reach fair settlements that preserve your financial stability and minimize conflict.

Expertise in Complex Asset Division

Divorces involving complex asset portfolios require specialized knowledge. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling high-asset divorces, including those involving business assets, investment portfolios, and pensions. We ensure that complex assets are divided legally and equitably.

Protection Against Marital Debt

Dividing marital debt is just as important as dividing assets. We work to ensure that you are not unfairly burdened with debts that should be shared by both spouses. Our approach includes negotiating debt responsibility and crafting agreements that protect you from future liabilities associated with marital debts.

Enforcing Prenuptial Agreements

If you have a prenuptial agreement, it can play a significant role in determining how property is divided during your divorce. Our attorneys are adept at reviewing and enforcing prenuptial agreements, ensuring that the terms are upheld and respected throughout the divorce process, in accordance with California law.
