Dividing Property During A Divorce

It can be overwhelming to understand how to divide property in California. Generally, property acquired during the marriage is equally divided at divorce, whereas premarital or inherited assets remain that person's separate property. Complications can arise when property is acquired before marriage and is improved during the marriage or where that property is sold and used to purchase other assets.

Our team at Foster Hsu, LLP, can help you understand property division in California, and the steps you should take to ensure your rights are protected and an equitable distribution takes place.

We Can Help With Nontraditional Assets

As you are considering the assets you need to divide, there are some that are easy to overlook. Nontraditional assets, such as airline miles and cryptocurrencies, can leave one spouse with an unequal share.

Consider whether any of your accounts have rewards tied to them that you should split with your spouse. You should also consider whether your spouse may have a "nontraditional" account, which should be divided.
