Bakersfield Property Division Lawyer
Helping You Reach Fair Marital Settlement Agreements in Kern, Tulare & Fresno Counties
As a community property state, California considers all property acquired during your marriage as being owned equally by both spouses. This means that a legal separation or divorce calls for all marital property and debt to be equally divided and distributed between the two parties. If either spouse wishes to maintain rights of ownership to any assets or avoid any specific debt, he or she must prove to the court that those assets or debts are separate from the marital estate. In some cases, valid prenuptial or post-marital agreements may have predetermined the issue of these assets and debts.
The division of marital property and debt is arguably the second most contentious issue in any divorce after child custody. This issue has enormous significance for your financial future. You will want to ensure your rights are protected and that you leave your marriage in the best financial condition possible. At Bobby Cloud Law, we are here to help you reach fair and just property settlements that will give you the financial footing you need to move forward in life as a single person. This can be done through skilled negotiation, mediation, or the collaborative law process. However, Attorney Cloud will fight for your best interests in court if that is the best option.
