Asset Division: Westlake Village Divorce Attorney

Not sure what assets you are entitled to in a divorce?

We at Richard Ross Associates know that getting a divorce is a legally complex and emotionally taxing process. Property division is often one of the key points of contention in a divorce, and we can provide the legal representation you need to seek a fair agreement or verdict. The first step in dividing assets is determining what is considered "community property." Community property is that which belongs to both of you, and generally includes anything acquired by you or your spouse once you were married.

The matter starts to become complicated with many valuable assets such as homes or businesses, when they may have belonged to one spouse prior to the marriage, but both have invested in them significantly since the marriage. Of course, there is also the fact that it is rarely practical to literally divide everything in half. In this case, the role of the court will be to ensure that the assets are divided in a way that is fair, so that each party is left with assets roughly equivalent to one another in value.
