Understanding High-Asset Divorce in California
California is a community property state, meaning that spouses own property acquired during the marriage. Even if only one party acquires property, if they do so using funds generated during the marriage, that asset or liability is typically considered marital property.
While spouses do not necessarily need to split community property equally, just equitably, most courts do assume that a 50/50 split is the easiest path forward. In divorces where both parties own valuable assets, this can have an unexpected financial impact on individuals engaged in a high-net-worth divorce.
Additionally, many assets and liabilities that individuals assume will be considered separate property - such as business revenue generated during a marriage or credit card debt acquired under one person's name - are actually considered community property in California.
