For most divorcing couples with significant assets, the importance of fair property division during divorce is second only to the issues of child custody and support. Although California is a community property state — which means all assets acquired during the marriage by either spouse except by inheritance or gift are divided 50/50 — reality is seldom so simple.
At the Barron Law Corporation, we represent high net worth individuals in often-contentious disputes over the division of marital property. Led by Sacramento complex property division attorney Deborah Barron and her 20-plus years of experience, we thoroughly understand what is at stake: your post-divorce financial future. Using refined and sophisticated legal techniques, we do everything we can that our clients are treated fairly throughout the asset division process.
Complex Property Division in California
Because California law is rather strict in mandating a 50/50 split of all community property, the most important job for a family law attorney in these cases is to make sure assets are classified properly. Every asset will be either community property of separate property. Separate property is yours alone, not subject to division.
Working with financial experts whenever necessary, Sacramento attorney Deborah Barron and the firm’s staff will know how to identify and characterize all forms of property, including:
- Property you owned before marriage
- Items you inherited or were given as a gift
- Appreciation of homes, businesses and real estate
- Liability for marital debts
- Value of professional practices and professional licenses
The Barron Law Corporation can help you with all aspects of property valuation and division during the course of divorce, including:
- Asset protection
- Divorce tax issues
- Business valuation
- Division of retirement accounts
- Child support issues
- Alimony/spousal support determinations
Your financial future following divorce will be impacted greatly by the lawyer you choose. If you select the Barron Law Corporation, you can be confident that your interests will be protected to the greatest possible extent.
