What Is Considered Property?
The first thing that might come to mind is possessions — furniture, automobiles or electronics, for example — but the property of a married couple often goes far beyond that.
The following is all property that may be divided under California law in a divorce:
- Real estate
- Retirement accounts
- Businesses and collections
- Debt (divided if incurred as a result of community expenditure)
One of the first steps is to verify the property that is involved. The legal team at Garber & Garber will carefully review accounts and perform the detailed research necessary to ensure that no stone is left unturned and that a fair valuation of property can be assessed.
