Property Division in Modesto, CA

Who gets what in the divorce?

One of the most challenging aspects of divorce is the division of property. Not only are emotions running high during this process, but the stress of knowing that what you have obtained during the relationship may be taken away can be overwhelming. Division of property is a serious matter that requires the expertise of a devoted family law attorney to help you fairly and justly divide your property.

At Scott Mitchell Law Incorporated, we aim to provide our clients with outstanding representation and guidance in their time of need and we may be able to help you and your family as well.

Guidance from Scott Mitchell Law Incorporated

In a divorce, property will be divided according to what is considered community property. Property that is communal can include anything that was acquired during the marriage, such as:

  • Mortgages
  • Homes
  • Cars
  • Bank accounts
  • Retirement accounts such as 401k and pensions

Debt may also be considered as communal property and will be equally distributed among the separating parties as well. Assets also up for division can include retirement funds, tax debt, and savings. If something is considered to be separate property, each spouse will retain that property without fear of it being taken or divided.

If a divorce is uncontested, the best possible way to quickly separate property is to work with a divorce mediator. By working with a mediator, you will be able to ensure that your property is divided in a fair manner without the hassle of courts and judges. If your divorce is contested, however, it is recommended that you work with our firm to help you establish was it rightfully yours.
