Debt Division The Path to a Better Divorce

Dividing Debt in Divorce Mediation

Have you and your spouse decided to get a divorce but want to avoid the trauma of litigation? You may want to consider going through the mediation process with the assistance of an Orange County divorce mediation attorney. At Alternative Divorce Solutions, our team is highly knowledgeable about the way California laws affect debt division.

How Is Debt Divided in California Divorces?

Just like with property and assets, debt is divided fairly between spouses during a divorce or dissolution. There are many factors considered during the division of debt, including the length of the marriage, the contribution each spouse had, and the amount of debt each incurred. Going through the mediation process rather than litigation can help keep a tricky situation like this out of a judge's hands. If you and your spouse are able to come up with a fair decision, you can save yourself a lot of stress and anxiety.

A few examples of the debt which may be divided in a divorce include:

  • Credit card debt
  • Business-related debt
  • Mortgages
  • Loans
  • Car loans
  • Home equity lines of credit
