Community Property, Separate Property, Commingled Property

In California, property and debts accrued during the marriage are community property and belong to both spouses. These assets and debts are equally divided during divorce, legal separation, or dissolution proceedings. One exception may be when an asset was acquired by one spouse as a gift or through inheritance. In this case, the asset belongs with only one spouse, even if it was acquired during marriage. Our experienced Property Division Attorneys work diligently to ensure assets are legally divided.


Assets or debts acquired prior to marriage remain the responsibility of one spouse, unless contributions have been made during the marriage by the other spouse. In those instances, the property may be designated as a commingled asset. It is part separate property and part community property. Our skilled Oceanside Property Division Attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of the laws governing marital asset division, and we are here to guide you through the entire process.


We make all attempts to first negotiate an equitable settlement. In the event the settlement talks fail to yield favorable results, our Oceanside Property Division Attorneys are seasoned litigators who are prepared to take your matter to court.
