How Does California Handle Assets In A Divorce?
California is a community property state. This means that all marital assets and debts – assets and debts accrued during the marriage – are subject to 50-50 division between spouses. Marital assets exclude inheritances and gifts but do include income, real estate and other purchases. When issuing a divorce order, the court may also consider factors such as:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse’s separate assets
- Each spouse’s earning potential
- Whether one spouse supported the other financially
Attorney Stratte is an experienced litigator who does not fear appearing in court before a judge. However, she also uses her skill as a negotiator and mediation advocate to resolve many cases privately. Through these methods, her clients often save money, avoid conflict and retain more control over the outcome.
What If My Spouse Has Control Of Our Money?
In some marriages, one spouse depends on the other financially. This grants the providing spouse with a great deal of power over the dependent one. Attorney Stratte knows exactly how to help you if you need to get out of an unhealthy marriage but do not have the finances to do so. She has worked with many survivors of financial abuse, intimate partner violence, harassment and other forms of abuse. She will explore your options for leaving your marriage safely while keeping measures cost-efficient.
