Looking Out For Your Best Interests When Dividing Property In Divorce

You and your partner are divorcing, and the time has come to divide your assets and property. While many people view this process as contentious, it does not have to be this way. Instead, you can choose to reach a property distribution agreement through mediation or collaborative law.

For more than 30 years, the Law Offices of Diane J.N. Morin, Inc. has worked with numerous divorcing couples throughout California to discover mutually beneficial ways to divide assets and property. With us on your side, we will advocate for your interests while working amicably with the other party. Our guidance can help the property division process go as smoothly and quickly as possible.

California Is A Community Property State: What Does This Mean?

When it comes to divorce, every state is either an equitable division state or a community property state. In equitable division states, a judge works to divide marital assets equitably between parties. In community property states, all marital property, assets and debts are divided equally between spouses.

The Law Offices of Diane J.N. Morin, Inc. can help you value your assets and obtain an arrangement that suits your financial situation. Even though marital property must be divided equally, a lawyer can help you retain the assets and property that you wish to keep.

Keep Your Case Private: Divide Property Out Of Court

There are many benefits to dividing your property and assets out of court. Not only do you have more control over your settlement, but the process remains private. By using mediation or collaboration, we can help you avoid battling with an ex in court over property distribution.
