Mediated Property Division in Orange County
Protecting Your Assets During the Divorce Mediation Process
The matter of community property may seem simple enough during the course of your marriage, however, it is often contested during divorce. You may be concerned about your spouse being able to take more than what is fair or losing a particular asset in the divorce. There are many different factors considered by the court if you have to go to litigation over property division.
What is Considered Community Property in California?
Community property in California refers to property that a couple owns together. In other words, when an asset is considered “community property”, then it belongs to the community (the couple) and not the individual that acquired it. In California, community property is generally split equally between the couple in a divorce.
Separate property refers to property that an individual owned before the marriage or apart from the marriage (such as an inheritance), which means it is not subject to division the way community property is divided between a couple.
Can Spouse Give Away Community Property?
A spouse cannot give community property away if a piece of it belongs to the other spouse. Once divided, a spouse could give away a divided portion, but it cannot include the other spouse’s portion.
