Division Of Property
Get Your Fair Share Of The Property
If you are going through divorce, you might be worried if you will be left without any financial resources. The Law Office of Patrick A. McCall works with divorcing people throughout Orange County, California, to make sure they get their fair share of the property. We will do whatever possible to set you up for a comfortable financial future.
When a married couple gets a divorce, one of the tasks that must be completed is distribution of the “marital property,” or assets and debts that the couple accumulated during the marriage. California is a community property state, which means marital assets are divided evenly.
Splitting Up Complex Assets
Depending on the value and nature of your marital property, splitting the assets in half can be fairly straightforward, or it can be complicated. For example, if you and your spouse own a small business, it is not so easy to divide the company in two.
At The Law Office of Patrick A. McCall, we assist clients seeking a fair division of their marital property. Property division that involves especially valuable assets, like a business or real estate, often requires the assistance of experts to get an accurate valuation. Armed with this information and other evidence, as your lawyer Patrick A. McCall will work toward a negotiated settlement that both parties can accept. If negotiation fails, we are always prepared to go to court to protect your financial rights.
Spouses can protect themselves in the event of divorce by setting up a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. Contact our office for more information.
