San Jose Lawyer: Clear Guidance In Property Division

Divorces are required by law to include provisions for distribution of assets. Some states, including California are "community property" states. According to the community property method, property acquired by spouses during the marriage is considered to be "marital property" and is divided equally. Property acquired outside of the marriage is considered to be "separate property." It is kept by the respective spouses.

This may sound straightforward, but it can be very complicated for many reasons. One of the most common is that many spouses, especially wives who kept the home and raised the children while their husbands worked, do not know the extent of their family's finances. They can be unsure of the family's total assets and where all accounts are located.
