Divorce/Legal Separation

Going through a divorce (dissolution), legal separation, or annulment can be an emotional and stressful experience. The amount of paperwork required by the courts just to start the process can be overwhelming, not to mention the knowledge of the law and local rules required to ensure that you obtain the best possible results in your case.

Divorce and legal separation cases require the division of marital assets and debts. The State of California is a “community property” state, which means that assets acquired during the marriage are divided equally between the parties, unless an exception applies. The same is true for the division of debts incurred during the marriage. Assets and debts from before the date of marriage or after the date of separation are presumed to be separate.
