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.
