Community Property Division

Pasadena Divorce and Community Property Rights Lawyer

At the Law Offices of Jesse A. Verdin, my staff and I understand the emotional strain brought on the entire family by divorce, separation, and the annulment of marriages. But, for as many intense emotions that surface, there can be as many legal obligations and issues.

That’s why my staff and I are here. As an experienced family law attorney who has handled such matters throughout Southern California, I've seen the worst of each. I can guide you through the process and help you avoid some of the pitfalls that make divorces painful. I routinely handle cases venued in the following courthouses: Pasadena, Los Angeles, Pomona, Norwalk, Burbank, Compton, Long Beach, Torrance and Rancho Cucamonga.

Contact us for personal, flexible support in protecting your rights and interests as you cope with the obligations that accompany divorce, legal separation, and annulment.

Among the most important obligations of both parties is to determine how to divide property and assets, commonly known as community property in California.

I Can Help You Divide Your Marital Property

Under California law, property acquired during the marriage is presumed to be community property, that is, it is owned equally by each party. Generally, who acquires the property or how they do it doesn’t matter, only that the total value of all community property be split between the two parties.

However, there are a number of exceptions to the general rule. Inheritances and gifts aren’t necessarily community property. It’s important to contact a knowledgeable lawyer with expertise in dividing community assets to ensure that you receive what you’re entitled to and complex valuations are done properly.

Other obligations that can arise as a result of dissolution can include establishing spousal support (alimony), child visitation orders, and child support orders.
