Protecting Your Right to Assets and Property
California community property laws recognize that both parties in a marriage have an equal claim to assets earned during the marriage, barring any prenuptial agreement. Assets such as property, retirement accounts, businesses and savings earned or purchased with community money during the marriage, need to be divided in the event of a divorce. How that split is done, how those assets are valued and how you ensure that your partner is being forthcoming and accurate about financial issues, however, requires an experienced attorney.
