Whenever a marriage ends, there are many things to keep in mind. If there are children, you have to consider who will raise them. Where they will live. Who makes all of the important decisions in their lives. If spousal support comes into question, you also have to consider who will pay and for how long. But one of the most difficult things to settle upon is property. Property division can be tricky because both parties have to determine what they are willing to split. Some property will be considered community property and some will be considered separate property.

What is the Difference Between Community Property and Separate Property?
According to California law, community property is defined as “any asset acquired or income earned by a married person while living with a spouse.” Separate property is defined as “anything acquired by a spouse prior to the marriage, during the marriage by gift, or other means.”
In California, the court will usually accept a fair and reasonable property division that both parties have agreed upon. However, if the parties cannot agree, the Superior Court within the Judgment of the Divorce does so.nbsp;
California is also a community property state, meaning all community property – and debt – acquired during the marriage is split equally. If spouses cannot meet an agreement on their own, the Superior Court divides it equally for them.
