Are you concerned about dividing your assets and debts subsequent to your divorce? Do you have questions about what constitutes "community property" and "separate property" in California?

You can bring all of your questions to the attorneys of Morris & Morris in Arcadia, California. We can provide the honest and realistic advice you are looking for. Since 1997, our family-owned and family-operated law office has helped Southern California clients find workable solutions for their property division issues.

Community Property and Separate Property

Generally, the property you acquired during your marriage will be considered community property and will be shared equally, more or less, as a condition of your divorce. If you are unable to reach an agreement on the division of this community property, we are prepared to aggressively litigate on your behalf.

Separate property is generally defined as possessions you owned before your marriage or property that you acquired after your separation. Gifts received by one of the spouses during the marriage, may also be considered separate property. We are happy to explain all the ramifications of your property division during your free initial consultation with our skilled divorce lawyers.
