Murrieta Division of Assets

Protecting Your Property in Divorce

If you are going through a divorce in Murrieta, one major concern may be the division of your assets. It is natural for spouses who are about to part ways to want to remain in possession of their property. Yet, in the state of California, all marital property must be divided in accordance with the law. This is why it is in your best interest to retain the services of a Murrieta family law attorney that is experienced in family law court.

California Property Division Laws

In most states, any time spouses decide to divorce or to legally separate, the division of their marital property is equitably distributed. However, in the state of California, property that is accumulated throughout the duration of a marital union is equally distributed after a divorce or separation. This means that all property, such as homes, cars and savings, will be divided equally between the spouses. The only way equal distribution of marital assets can be avoided is if the spouses have a pre or post nuptial agreement or an intact marital agreement.
